Policy Analysis (core)


Semester One

Module Leader:  Dr Eilidh Macphail

The aim of this module is to explore the complex process of developing and implementing public policy, particularly in rural, remote and mountain areas. It provides an introduction to policy analysis, from identifying problems and generating and evaluating alternative policies, to implementing policies and evaluating their impacts, as part of the policy cycle. The differing values and goals of different groups, and links between social, economic and environmental policies, will be explored.
