POLI 350A Public Policy (Term 2)

POLI 350A Public Policy

This course will provide the student with an overview of the various political science theories that apply to the public policy-making process. It will also allow students to “get their feet wet” in the policy analysis field. The focus is on the domestic level of Canadian public policy, as POLI 352 (Comparative Politics of Public Policy) examines the comparative dimension using a cross-national lens. We will, however, look at some theoretical debates that draw on cross-national comparisons. We will examine current debates such as the politics of urban sprawl in the Greater Vancouver area, climate change policy in Canada, abortion policy, housing policy, same-sex marriage and legislation, etc.
