Short content

The content of the course covers decision-making processes about public policies (structure/phases of policy process/cycle, relationships between phases), with emphasis on the role and functioning of policy actors involved in the public policy processes. We expose the peculiarities of state actors (the role of policy instruments, different policy styles) and inclusiveness of non-state actors (policy arenas, policy networks) in the processes of decision-making about public policies.
