In addition to explaining the key tenets of policy analysis, the internationally renowned author offers a wide variety of international case studies and useful boxes to highlight examples. Invaluable reading for students of public policy, for policy makers and practioners working in the public sector, it includes: Learning from comparison. Defining a problem and creating awareness. Where to look for lessons. Applying the policy model. The problems of importing models. Using terms to evaluate future consequences.
