Theory and Practice
Public Policy in Australia: Theory and Practice is designed to help students engage with public policy. The book covers theoretical traditions, ideas and concepts together with the processes that enable policy making. Shedding light on the internal processes and practices that underpin policy formation and implementation, Public Policy in Australia also discusses the role of interest groups, media and social movements as external factors influencing public opinion and policy change. Each chapter contains study questions and topical case studies, to help students understand the importance and practical application of public policy.
