Public Policy Bits: Check Blog by Professor Cairney

However, one website offers a good take on many of those concepts, and only in 1000 words! It is the blog written by Paul Cairney and can be found here. This is excellent for students of public policy and people with general interest. So are you taking a public policy class and you have to read about Advocacy Coalition Framework? Read this on the blog in just 1000 words! Or almost all key concepts which are usually covered in a policy class. Some of the concepts covered in the blog include the following: Policy change and measurement, The Policy Cycle and its Stages, Success and Failure (Evaluation), Bounded Rationality and Incrementalism.

And if you are a Ph.D. student, or have a friend or someone going through the process, then the Ph.D. Chat page of the website will also be of interest. Enjoy the blog!
