Comparative Policy and Governance
Also: POLI 607
Focuses on the study of diverging governance practices and policy outcomes in different jurisdictions. Examines: 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.
