Learning Objectives

The course will be held entirely in English. The course will be aimed at acquiring the fundamental analytical tools for the analysis of public policies. As public policy analysis is a science that uses different analytical and explanatory approaches, these will be examined one by one by making concrete examples in order to understand their effectiveness. At the end of this methodology part, two cases of policy making analysis will be addressed, one relating to the European Union and the other to China. These two cases will allow an analysis of the decision-making procedures in two extremely different institutional macro-contexts. For the second part of the course, the course teacher is available to agree with the students attending the analysis of case studies other than those proposed here.

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

The aim of the course will be to develop in the student an analytical ability that he can then apply to different contexts, micro and macro. The student will therefore be required to have critical, analytical and expository skills. Students will try to analyze concrete cases together with the teacher, developing a methodological sensitivity that will allow them to face even complex public policy analyzes and evaluations. The proposed cases will serve to know complex decision-making environments and to realize how institutional decision-making procedures are different from how they appear superficially.
