PBPL 46 Policy Implementation

Good policies are neither self-executing nor self-enforcing. Likewise, bad policies are not self-destructing. Indeed, when the President signs a law, this is but the beginning of a new set of equally important political activities and policy battles. This course explores central features of implementation, including bureaucratic activity, judicial review, and street-level administration, and central concepts including principal agent relationships, delegation, oversight, interpretation, maintenance, and erosion, through key cases, including police, health care, and civil rights.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:SOC; WCult:W

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
