Earlier in this course, you explored the development and implementation of public policy in a democratic government. Specifically, you considered which tools and practices are most effective in the making of public policy. Think about how public policy might be used to better society. Begin by thinking about the role of public policy in society. Public policy is generally developed in response to a public issue or problem. Should public policy be used to drive social change issues, or should social change drive public policy? This question has occupied the thoughts of elected and appointed government officials for years and is likely to be a topic for future discussion and debate. As you ponder this debate, consider the link between public policy and social change in democratic governance.
To prepare for this Discussion:
