Policy may involve action or in action, policy must be more than mere political rhetoric. The main goal of the course is to help you think systematically, critically, and creatively in giving policy advice to decision makers in the public sector.

These multiple layers of ‘policy making’ allow for a wide range of individuals and organisations to participate in the policy process.
