The course consists of 16 classes held over eight weeks (half of the academic term). A new topic will be introduced each week and covered over two classes. Classes will take the form of lectures, discussions of specific policy issues, and case studies. Students are encouraged to participate in discussions and draw out policy and theoretical implications as a group. The course introduces the study of public policy in a market economy, and addresses key concepts including market and market failures, the role of the state, institutions, and sustainable development. We will also discuss problems in policy implementation and questions about values.
