Bureaucracies will therefore identify the most common pathologies. Then the main reforms that have invested the bureaucracies of the western countries will be presented starting from the eighties of the twentieth century. In the second part of the course, the main products of the administrative activity will be analyzed, that is to say the public policies.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The main objectives of the course are to provide the student who comes out of high school and approaches the study of political science, a field of knowledge of institutions and tools of government in their generality, which can be found in different national contexts even when the relations between legislative, executive and judicial power take different forms. During the lessons will be provided examples and materials useful for understanding the concrete cases but the aim will always be to encourage the conceptualization and abstraction from the concrete case to develop analytical tools of the social sciences. The students will therefore be induced, both during the lecture, and through the stimulus to participate in reflections for groups or individuals, to develop analytical concepts, to link these concepts together in order to increase their ability to analyze, connect, criticism and exemplification. The concomitance of this course with the courses of Political Science, Public Law and Metology will allow students to address the concepts of government and administration from different points of view, learning regardless of the individual concrete situation to adopt a more perspective look wide. The learning outcomes will therefore be evaluated in terms of:

ability to understand the main conceptual analysis tools

ability to relate the different analytical concepts in order to be able to interpret new phenomena

autonomy of judgment, in the production of analytical paths thanks to the growth of the aforementioned capacities

ability to express written and oral assertions based on your own judgment

ability to publicly support their opinions in a comparison of arguments based on analytical and comparative concepts
