Public Policy: Formulation, Implementation and Evaluation

Paper – I, – chapter – 10

The Subject of Public Policy is a new area which has yet to acquire an independent status in the realm of social sciences. Available literature seems to support the impression that the focus of the attention of public administration or political science has never really been policies themselves.

There exists a gap between the academic approaches to the study of institutional arrangements and the content of public policy. Whereas political science has concentrated on the structure of individual political institutions, public administration has focused on the machinery for the implemented of public policies.

From such approaches, it is difficult to know much about the way policy is made and implemented. In this work, an attempt has been made to relate traditional approaches to the content of public policy.

The book has been revised thoroughly by adding new chapters to meet the growing needs of students.
