This course introduces the student to the study of public policy-making in
liberal democratic states. After having discussed the major economic and
political science approaches to sudying public policy, the course utilizes a
five-stage model of the policy process to conceptualize its operation. The
fundamental actors involved in public policy-making, the institutions within
which those actors operate, and the instruments used in fashioning solutions to
public problems are inventoried, and the links between actors, institutions and
instruments in the development and evolution of public policies discussed.
While the framework presented can be applied to any liberal democratic state,
illustrations from Canadian circumstances will be stressed in the course.
