Right now, this page contains blog posts and podcasts on the theme of policy and policymaking in the UK (for my POLU9UK undergraduate course). Eventually, it will contain all draft chapters of my book (same title). Right now, some of them are at the end of the page and the original plan is here (yes, that was a long time ago).
These posts introduce you to key concepts in the study of public policy. They are all designed to turn a complex policymaking world into something simple enough to understand. Some of them focus on small parts of the system. Others present ambitious ways to explain the system as a whole. The wide range of concepts should give you a sense of a variety of studies out there, but my aim is to show you that these studies have common themes.
