Abstract

"Policy work" is increasingly conducted by public managers at different levels of seniority, and in a variety of settings. This collection of readings focuses on discussion about the ways in which policy work happens, whether that involves bringing a policy-making process to fruition or the implementation of policy. The ideas draw on many different academic disciplines, including economics, political science, social policy, international relations, organizational behavior and psychology. Making Policy Happen equips the reader with the knowledge and ability to analyze the key theoretical, conceptual and operational approaches to the development and management of public policy. Containing timeless papers that are the building blocks of understanding public policy, it allows the reader to examine new issues in different contexts.
