This Handbook provides a comprehensive global survey of the policy process. Written by an outstanding line up of distinguished scholars and practitioners, the Handbook covers all aspects of the policy process including:

  • Theory – from rational choice to the new institutionalism
  • Frameworks – network theory, advocacy coalition and development models
  • Key stages in the process – Formulation, implementation and evaluation
  • Agenda setting and decision making
  • The roles of key actors and institutions

This is an invaluable resource for all scholars, graduate students and practitioners in public policy and policy analysis.
