The Australian Policy Handbook

Synopsis

The theory and practice of policy-making in Australia are addressed in this fully revised text. The authors draw on their depth of practical experience to outline the processes used in making public policy while systematically explaining the relationships between political decision makers, public-service advisers, community participants, and those charged with implementing programs. This updated guide includes new material on evidence-based policy making, deliberative-democracy and consultation processes, the media, community engagement, and other networks. The fresh examples, references, and Internet resources make this an ideal guide for both students and professionals.
