This book provides an introduction to the key policy functions, the challenges they entail, and how the challenges may be addressed by public officials. Written from a comparative perspective, the authors include examples from a diverse range of countries at different stages of development, highlighting key principles and practices through which officials can effectively manage their policy processes and outcomes. This important tool offers students of public policy and policy practitioners? guidance on how to make, implement and evaluate public policies in ways that improve citizens? lives.
