Policy Analysis as Problem Solving : A Flexible and Evidence-Based Framework Paperback / softback
Drawing extensively from real-life cases, Policy Analysis as Problem Solving helps students develop the analytic skills necessary to advise government officials and nonprofit executives on a wide range of policy issues.
Unlike other texts, Policy Analysis as Problem Solving employs a pragmatic, heterodox approach to the field.
Whereas most texts on policy analysis are anchored in microeconomics, emphasizing economic efficiency, this book takes a broader view, using realistic examples to illustrate the full scope of policy analysis.
The book provides succinct but thorough discussions of the key elements of the policy-analytic process, including problem definition, objectives and criteria, development of alternative policy options, and analysis of these alternatives.
The text's practical approach and extensive downloadable resources-which include interviews, case studies, and further readings-will be of enormous benefit to both students and instructors of policy analysis.
