PO345 Course Outline Winter 2013

 PO345 Assignment #1

PO 345 Assignment #2

Due Date: March 5, 2013
     Familiarize yourself with the material in Part 2 (chapters 6 through 11) of the Miljan text "Public Policy in Canada" (6th ed), and then use the various policy examples within it to illustrate each of the five models of power discussed in class;  elitism, pluralism, institutionalism, globalization (systems theory), and game theory. Students can utilize general policy areas in the book, or specific sub-areas if they prefer. You should be advised that there is not necessarily one correct policy application for each theory, but that you will be evaluated upon the insights and quality of the explanations you present. Students will be penalized for selecting examples not covered in the text. Papers should be submitted in hard copy.
