    COURSE OVERVIEW
    This course examines the process by which public organizations selectively attend to
    complex social problems and the ways that policy solutions are formulated and
    determined. To enhance an understanding of such crucial phases of the policy formation,
    key concepts and theories are examined along with systematic discussion of relevant
    cases.
