HS 403F — Policy to Action: Understanding Implementation

The goal of this course is to provide students with a framework for understanding the implementation of public- regarding policy. The process of implementation is the way public intention is translated into public action. Understanding it is a central tool for bringing about changes in the way policy impacts peoples’ lives. This course considers models of how implementation can be understood, what are the factors in a systematic approach and, therefore, how to influence the implementation process from the inside. Usually offered every year.
