Overview
• What is policy?
• Politics versus public administration
• Policy theory versus practice
• Engaging with academics and practitioners
• Recent policy work
What is policy?
• Two approaches (institutional and critical):
• Institutional: Public policy is a dynamic process that involves
various public policy players and the interplay of values,
interests and resources, working through the institutions of
the political process, aiming to achieve a particular policy
outcome (Davis, Wanna, Warhurst & Weller 1992)
• Critical: “Clarifications of public values and intentions,
commitments of money and services, or granting rights and
entitlements” (Considine 1992)
Politics versus public administration
• Politics – Media - Public Administration - Academia
• Different approaches based on the democratic/political
policy formulation process and the execution and
implementation of policy by the executive (public service)
• “[I]dentifiable patterns of interdependence between key
social actors such as parties, corporations, unions,
professions and citizens… [which] shape behaviours,
problems, and solutions” (Considine 1992)
The Policy Cycle
Policy theory versus practice 1
Policy theory versus
practice 2
• Stewardship
• Stewardship historically implied the exercise of
some inter-generational custodianship and
collective responsibility for an entity or a body
charged with such responsibility
Policy theory versus
practice 3
• Co-design and co-production
• Important differences in co-design and co-production relate to the stages of
policy formulation. Typically, co-design concerns policy-makers engaging
with stakeholders to design public policy which is then applied to the
stakeholders, whereas co-production (of public services, in particular) brings
stakeholders in to the delivery process – the foundations of which
stakeholders may or may not have been involved with.
Policy theory versus
practice 4
• Getting better outcomes
• Recognising that outcomes are shared
responsibilities and that other players will make
contributions is an essential aspect of adopting an
outcomes framework for policy-making and delivery
Engaging with academics and practitioners
• Universities
• Research centres
• ANZSOG
• IPAA
• Think tanks
• Media
