The UK Social Policy Process by Catherine Bochel


The UK Social Policy Process by Catherine Bochel

The UK Social Policy Process examines the wide range of factors that influence social policies and their outcomes. Devolution, 'modernisation', reform of the public services, emphases on public participation and on 'what works' in the delivery of welfare are all impacting on and shaping social policy. Combining coverage of theoretical perspectives with discussion of institutional change, this book provides a timely examination of the policy process and social policy, from agenda setting to implementation and evaluation.
