Programma dettagliato e risultati di apprendimento attesi

099710 - POLICY ANALYSIS

Giancarlo Vecchi

The main aim of the course is to familiarise the students with the theory and practice of public policy analysis, a political science sub-discipline involved in explaining and predicting the ways in which governments at all levels interact with citizens, companies, ONG and other public and private organisations in the solution of collective problems. The class will be organised as follows: Introduction: The paradigm of Policy Analysis. The policy cycle. The elements of Public Policies design: the program theory and the evaluation approach: designing output and outcomes of a program; the policy instruments; implementation strategies: the mechanisms approach.  The decision-making process: theories, models, frameworks (the actors and their roles, resources, stake, patterns of interaction, environment), network analysis, strategies for successful decisions. Every year some specific contents are analysed in depth.

The empirical contents of the Course are coordinated with the Urban Policy Design Laboratory activities (prof. Balducci).

The second part of the course will be dedicated to student presentations of selected topics and key readings.
