Course Description

PPOL 221
Political Efficacy

A major challenge for any policy analyst and policy change agent is to match policy design to the requirements for enactment and implementation. This course will offer a practicum in political feasibility, first teaching the student how to do an institutional inventory of major organizations and institutions necessary for implementation of specific policies. Students will also examine the political environment of specific policy arenas and learn strategies for coalition building, negotiation, and generating public support.
