Abstract

Understanding policy processes can be a tricky business for students of social policy, practitioners and even policy makers. The structure of power and authority within an organisation, the influence of partner agencies on the execution of well-laid plans and the involvement of the media and community activists can all shape and distort decision-making, implementation and evaluation of policies in the public sector. Spicker has set himself a difficult task of unpacking this often obtuse topic for readers.
