RC32 Public Policy and Administration

Session Code
Session Chairs
Prof. Philippe Zittoun

The Research Committee was established to promote the study of public policy and administration around the world, to advance the analysis of public policy, the consequences of public policies for institutions of government, and the art of public management. It is a network which enables political scientists and practitioners with an interest in public policy and administration to share ideas and to organise interesting activities, and aims to strengthen the links between those with an interest in these topics. When the first moves were made which culminated in the formation of the research committee, the focus was on 'policy analysis', but over time, the focus broadened to take in the full range of practices aimed at 'steering' public activity.
