PPG2012H: Achieving Policy Change from Outside Government
PPG2012H focuses on the role of interest groups and advocacy in the public policy process.
This course seeks to achieve three primary objectives:
- Impart real-world knowledge on how to achieve policy objectives on behalf of non-governmental entities (corporations, non-profits, broader public sector, etc.);
- help students develop concrete skills (strategic and communications) necessary to influence government and achieve public policy objectives; and
- hone a theoretical understanding of pluralism, collective action, and interest group activity.
