An Introduction to Australian Public Policy

Theory and Practice

Sarah Maddison,

An Introduction to Australian Public Policy: Theory and Practice
 
 
An Introduction to Australian Public Policy: Theory and Practice is the first book to comprehensively address both the theoretical and practical aspects of policy making in Australia. Written in an accessible style, this text is designed to introduce students to the real world challenges and skills involved in working in a range of policy roles. Drawing on their own experiences, the authors ground public policy theory in a number of key controversies to illustrate the contestable nature of the policy process. Each chapter features case studies that outline contemporary policy issues, such as the deregulation of the financial system, 'Knowledge Nation', paid maternity leave, and the Northern Territory intervention. Including practical exercises on how to write policy briefs and media releases, this book is essential reading for anyone who needs to know how public policy is developed in Australia.
