Course Overview

What does public policy development and analysis actually mean? It refers to the research, analysis, creation, implementation and maintenance of laws and regulations on specific public issues by the respective local, state or federal governments.

It is an ongoing process because policies need to be re-evaluated and amended from time to time, depending on costs, resource allocation, impact etc. The primary objective of a government introducing public policy is to improve the quality of life of its people.

At the federal level, policies help regulate businesses and industries in various aspects of their operation, while keeping public interests and safety in mind. Thus, the public policy includes laws, regulations, judgements, case studies, government programs, etc.
