What is Governance and Public Policy?

Can we reduce carbon emissions without damaging national economies? Can our financial systems work for everyone? How can governments improve responses to disasters?

Studying Governance and Public Policy will give you insight into how governments decide what policies to pursue within political, economic, legal and international constraints. This means you will examine the ways in which people try to change the world and the institutional settings that help or hinder this.

The study of Governance and Public Policy will give you an intellectual tool-kit that can be applied across the public and private sectors to improve governance.
