GOVT 92.02 Public Policy in Cross-national Perspective

This course will investigate four major areas of public policy cross-nationally.  The policy areas will include health care, education, Middle East policy and development policy.  We will focus on policy in the U.S. and European nations but we will also review some analyses of developed nations in other parts of the world.  We will come to an understanding of how and why approaches to these policy areas vary across nations.  We will consider common trends in policy reform.  We will also consider what effective policies the U.S. might import and what it might usefully export to other nations.  Students will come to understand how and why the U.S. differs culturally, historically and institutionally from the U.K. and other developed nations in its pursuit and implementation of public policy.



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.
