This course introduces students to the study of the instruments used by governments in carrying out their tasks and adapting to, and altering, their environments. An essential component of modern governance, substantive and procedural policy instruments together comprise the toolbox from which governments must choose in attempting to resolve policy problems. The course begins with the establishment of a framework for analyzing governing instruments and moves on to consider the merits, demerits and rationales for the use of specific organization, regulatory, financial and information-based instruments. Finally, the manner in which instrument change relates to overall policy change is assessed.
