Public policy praxis : a case approach for understanding policy and analysis by Randall S Clemons( Book )

20 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This readable and conceptual approach to public policy carefully balances theory and practice to provide students at all levels with a solid grounding in policy analysis. Authors Randy S. Clemons and Mark K. McBeth explore the impact of mixed methodologies on policy analysis, supported by interesting and useful teaching cases. Offering a balanced view of public policy, the text addresses the political basis of policy making and analysis and covers the limitations, practical problems, and ethical implications of different techniques and methodologies. Models and tools are provided to help students develop the analytical skills necessary for policy analysis, while engaging boxes and anecdotes relate concepts to specific examples. In addition to new coverage, this edition has been revised to make the book even more accessible to undergraduates without weakening its usefulness to graduate students."--Provided by publisher

The science of stories : applications of the narrative policy framework in public policy analysis by Michael D Jones( )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Science of Stories: Applications of the Narrative Policy Framework in Policy Analysis is the first comprehensive collection of Narrative Policy Framework (NPF) studies, a new framework that empirically examines the role of policy narratives in the policy process. The core theme of NPF, and hence the book, is that policy narratives shape policy processes through influences on public opinion, coalitional behavior, and cultures and institutions. The original elements of this volume that set it apart from other policy texts are (1) empirical accounts of the power of stories at different levels of analysis within the policy process; (2) studies examining both domestic and international policy arenas; and (3) an assessment of this book written Christopher Weible and Edella Schlager, two prominent policy process scholars who situate the NPF in the larger policy process literature. The Science of Stories is a desired text for graduate and undergraduate policy courses

Hiring a sustainable development specialist : diversity and pre-screening applicants with the use of a Google search by Mark K McBeth( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this straightforward and timely case, students are tasked with navigating the intricacies of public personnel hiring including the managerial, political, legal, and ethical challenges that are commonly faced by public managers. As the director of a city economic development division, the student must choose between a group of candidates that have applied for a new position that has opened up in the department. Each candidate's qualifications are described with the inclusion of details from the candidate's personal life that create a twist in what should be a simple hiring process. The case can be used by the instructor in a variety of ways. On one level, the case works as a teaching tool for demonstrating to students how hiring works in the public sector. The students create a scoring matrix and rank each candidate using the candidate's information and qualifications. They learn the importance and role of hiring committees, reference checking, and issues of legality in the hiring process. Additionally, the case serves as a lesson in ethics, legalities, and decision making. Students are faced with two major dilemmas dealing with the use of the internet in pre-screening employees and the role of affirmative action and diversity in the workplace. Instructors can use the case in courses such as Human Resource management, Public Policy, an introductory Public Administration course, or Public Administration Ethics. The case can serve as an activity for supplementing a lecture on affirmative action policy, hiring, or ethics. Preferably, the case is taught best and more comprehensively in a case discussion where the students prepare a writing assignment before class and are ready to discuss the implications and conclusions they come up with in a 60-75 minute class discussion
Narrative Policy Framework : the Influence of Media Policy Narratives on Public Opinion by Elizabeth A Shanahan( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Resumen: Las narrativas políticas se encuentran presentes en el ambiente político con cartas de grupos de cabildeo, discursos y reportes en los medios. El papel de las narrativas políticas está tomando una mayor importancia en la investigación de las políticas públicas. El tema central de este artículo es el efecto de las narrativas políticas sobre la opinión pública. Para medir esto usamos un diseño cuasi experimental con 194 estudiantes y un tema controversial en el Parque Nacional de Yellowstone. Los participantes tomaron un test inicial usado como referencia base. La información se presentó en una de dos condiciones que reflejaban grupos de intereses divergentes, seguida por una segunda encuesta. Los resultados indican que las narrativas políticas de los medios influyen en dos formas. Primero, éstas "predican a los convertidos" cuando son leídas por audiencias con opiniones similares, resultando en un reforzamiento significativo de opiniones congruentes. Segundo, éstas "convierten" a lectores con puntos de vista diferentes; el resultado es un cambio de opinión significativo en la dirección opuesta a las opiniones sostenidas previamente

The story of good citizenship : framing public policy in the context of duty-based versus engaged citizenship by Mark K McBeth( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Estudios recientes han explorado las dimensiones de la noción de "ciudadanía basada en deberes"vis-à-vis aquella de "ciudadanía involucrada". Estos estudios afirman que los individuos difieren en sus respuestas a la pregunta de "¿qué es un buen ciudadano?". Así mismo, parecen sugerir que los "ciudadanos involucrados" son más participativos, globales, y entregados a la justicia social que sus homólogos basados en deberes. En este artículo examinamos los efectos potenciales del incremento de la ciudadanía involucrada en asuntos de política con una innovadora metodología de encuestas y combinando la literatura de ciudadanía y la teoría del enmarcamiento de asuntos. Nuestras preguntas exploran las características de la ciudadanía y si acaso los individuos cuyo comportamiento se aproxima al planteado en la noción de "ciudadanía basada en deberes" son más proclives a apoyar una política de reciclaje, que aquellos cuyo comportamiento se aproxima al planteado en la noción de "ciudadanía involu
