About the eBook

This Handbook covers the accounts, by practitioners and observers, of the ways in which policy is formed around problems, how these problems are recognized and understood, and how diverse participants come to be involved in addressing them. H.K. Colebatch and Robert Hoppe draw together a range of original contributions from experts in the field to illuminate the ways in which policies are formed and how they shape the process of governing.

The Handbook on Policy, Process and Governing covers not only the activities of government, but also the contributions of other stakeholders, and the ways in which a wide range of participants contribute to the formation of public policy. It explores the tensions involved in the policy process between: innovative choice and stable practice, authoritative decision and negotiated order, and agreed activity and announced goals.

The scholar's focus on the analysis of activity and the practitioner's interest in the achievement of outcomes are brought together in this timely book, making it a valuable read for public policy scholars and practitioners alike.
