Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Bringing the major current insights in implementation research and theory together, Public Policy, Implementation and Governance reviews the literature on public policy implementation, relating it to contemporary developments in thinking about governance. The text stresses the continuing importance of a focus upon implementation processes and explores its central relevance to the practice of public administration. In light of the changing nature of governance, Hill and Hupe suggest strategies for both future research on and management of public policy implementation. Their basic approach is two-fold: firstly, to understand the process of implementation and secondly, to address how one might control and affect this process. Public Policy implementation is a neglected area that is making a come back after a boom period in the 70s and 80s when several key seminal works were published. This revisits these to provide a contemporary reassessment engaging with topical debates about that have involved since around the concept of governance. The text draws on a lot of different national policy examples (i.e. British, European, and American etc)
