Public policy analysis Summary


Public policy analysis by Peter Knoepfel

This book is an English version of a successful text* on public policy analysis originally written for policy practitioners in Switzerland and France. It presents a model for the analysis of public policy and includes examples of its application in everyday political-administrative situations. This English version introduces supplementary illustrations and examples from the United Kingdom. Structured and written accessibly for readers who may not have an academic background in the social sciences, Public Policy Analysis applies key ideas from sociology, political science, administrative science and law to develop an analytical framework that can be used to carry out empirical studies on different public policies. British scholars, practitioners and students are introduced all too rarely to ideas from the Francophone world, and this book will contribute to remedying that. It will be particularly relevant for students and practitioners of public administration.

Public policy analysis Reviews


"...I would particularly recommend this book to students and practitioners involved in policy evaluation..." "What this book does exceptionally well, whilst remaining theoretically neutral, is present an analytically and conceptually sophisticated account of public policy. It has the potential to be used to teach and to inform high-quality research." Social Policy, Vol 37:3, 2008
"This book makes a major contribution to the literature. The approach it takes offers new and important insights for students of public policy and policy analysis. It deserves to be marked 'essential' and 'highly recommended' in any reading list in the field." Wayne Parsons, Professor of Public Policy, Queen Mary, University of London.
"This is a very comprehensive text on the analysis of the policy process, enabling students to consider how they might approach analysis at each stage of the rational cycle of activities." A. Thompson, Univeristy of Edinburgh.
