Public Policy Project

Definition

Public policy is a course of action taken by government in response to a perceived problem of its constituents, whether through a law or a regulation. Public policy is influenced by interest groups, the courts and funding priorities in its implementation.

Rationale

The goal of this project is to have you gain a deeper understanding of a public policy you are interest in: its background & implementation, the role of the courts and interest groups and its effects on the populace. All of these areas were covered at various times during the semester.
