HS 219F — Policy Making Institutions in the Developing World
Meets for one-half semester and yields half-course credit.
Institutions are often defined as a set of rules and procedures for getting things done—in this case, making policy. Yet institutions are not merely machines or algorithms (if x, then do A). Institutions are also ideas—people have understandings and interpretations about what any institution is and should be, and about what goals an institution should serve, and about how to make any institution better serve their goals. Usually offered every year.
