Comparative Policy and Governance
Also: ADMN 605
The study of diverging governance practices and policy outcomes in different jurisdictions. Focus is on: policy determinants such as history, culture, institutions, and the economy; policy dynamics and processes such as agenda-setting and decision-making, networks and communities, and policy change; and policy styles and transfer, referring to the state's ability to design, coordinate, implement and learn from policy interventions. Students will review seminal studies and undertake a comparative policy project. Intended for doctoral candidates preparing for a comprehensive examination in the field.
