Short or summer course
The course introduces students to theories of policy making and engages them in analysing the policy making process: How do issues enter the agenda? What is the role of policy brokers? What events take place?
We discuss how policy formulation is both an analytical process as well as a political one. We ask questions why most policies only change incrementally, even when large changes are needed in support of sustainable development.
In the course the participants will use tools and frameworks to analyse processes and content of policy and apply it to their own case. During the course we evaluate and study the policy plan itself, and the process of making and implementating it.
Topics addressed in the course include:
- Policy change and stability
- Policy theories (incl. multiple streams, punctuated equilibrium, advocacy coalitions,)
- Assessing a policy plan
- Policy formulation
- Policy implementation
- Policy evaluation for impact
- Policy translation and transfer
- Policy learning

The European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is a student-centred system based on the student workload required to achieve the objectives of a programme of study. Its aim is to facilitate the recognition of study periods undertaken by mobile students through the transfer of credits. The ECTS is based on the principle that 60 credits are equivalent to the workload of full-time student during one academic year.
