Describe and critically evaluate different theories of the policy making process, including the policy cycle, rational and incremental models of policy making, top down and bottom up understandings of implementation, and the role of evidence-based policy

In this paper, you are supposed to describe and evaluate various theories of the policy making process, including the policy cycle, rational and incremental models of policy making, top down and bottom up understandings of implementation, and the role of evidence-based policy and explain the role of power in the policy process. Furthermore, you are to account for the main internal and external factors, evaluate the conditions which underpin relative policy success and failure, and assess key challenges and constraints facing contemporary public policy makers at local, national and international levels. Finally, you are asked to make effective use of different types of evidence and demonstrate competence in critical thinking and writing about the policy process in your report.

Course Aims

This course aims to introduce different ways of thinking about what policy is and how it is formulated: the actors, institutions, ideologies, evidence, opinion and other factors that influence policy-making and policy outcomes. It explores different theories of the policy making process and how these relate to contemporary debates and practical challenges facing policy-makers.  It considers what is meant by policy `success` and how this can be delivered and evaluated, raising important, contested issues about the complexity of public policy and the broad range of actors affected to question `success for whom`? It aims to explore how the changing macroeconomic environment presents particular challenges for public policy making.

Intended Learning Outcomes of Course

By the end of this course, having undertaken the associated reading and assignment, students will be able to: 
1. Describe and critically evaluate different theories of  the policy making process, including the policy cycle, rational and incremental models of policy making, top down and bottom up understandings of implementation, and the role of evidence-based policy

2. Explain the role of power in the policy process and the ways it can be exerted in policy networks and more participative policy processes.

3. Critically account for the main internal and external factors shaping what government does and what actually happens `on the ground`, including the role of agencies, public servants, the private sector, the media and those subject to that policy

4. Critically evaluate the conditions which underpin relative policy success and failure

5. Apply assessment of key challenges and constraints facing contemporary public policy makers at local, national and international levels to explain real world policy choices

6. Make effective use of different types of evidence in evaluating policy processes and outcomes

A masterpiece of assignment by , written on 2020-03-12

Now I am happy that I made the right decision of coming to Insta Research for help. My term paper was so technical and analytical at the same time. I got really confused about what to do but got relaxed when I was given such a humble writer. He clarified my concepts with the best explanations and discussions. I almost interacted with him on daily basis within the writing process. The best feature of this site is quick delivery as I got the work before my deadline. Additionally, the term paper is written skillfully and handled quite professionally. Now I am able to take a deep sigh of relief and thank you all for such speedy help. The quality of the work made my day.
