Implementing Public Policy Summary

Implementing Public Policy: Governance in Theory and in Practice by Michael Hill

Bringing the major current insights in implementation research and theory together, Public Policy, Implementation and Governance reviews the literature on public policy implementation, relating it to contemporary developments in thinking about governance.

The text stresses the continuing importance of a focus upon implementation processes and explores its central relevance to the practice of public administration. In light of the changing nature of governance, Hill and Hupe suggest strategies for both future research on and management of public policy implementation. Their basic approach is two-fold: firstly, to understand the process of implementation and secondly, to address how one might control and affect this process.

Re-exploring the state of the art of the study of implementation as a sub-discipline of political science and public administration, this book will be essential reading for students and researchers in public policy, social policy, public management, public adminstration and governance.

`This is an excellent and much needed book. Hill and Hupe have provided a well written and highly accessible account of the development of implementation studies which will be immensely valuable to everyone concerned with understanding implementation in modern policy making.' - Professor Wayne Parsons, University of London

"Evidently, the time has come to describe and assess the shift and its effects on policies per se. And this book does so brilliantly. It takes stock of the relevant literature and also identifies significant theoretical issues as well as practical problems associated with public implementation in the new context of governance. Thus, the book is depicted as a state-of-the-art on public policy implementation"
