Whether a policy is ‘successful’ depends on a range of factors: it’s intended impact, how it is designed and implemented; and how one chooses to oversee the entire process. Having control is crucial if policy is to meet it’s intended objectives; however various actors can mean this doesn’t happen.
Our Centre for the Analysis of Social Policy researchers critically evaluate the different aspects of policymaking in countries across the world to understand how differences in governance structures, the policy process and actors can all affect policymaking in practice.
