Issues to be examined include the role of culture in fostering economic development, political culture, culture and democracy, culture and corruption, culture and foreign policy, culture and public policies with respect to disadvantaged minorities, multiculturalism, culture and social policy, and the role of culture in shaping the content, framework and outcomes of public policies in North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
This topic aims to provide students with an understanding of the way in which the content, framework and outcomes of public policies are shaped by their cultural context. Students will learn about various theories of culture, the cultural sources of variations in public policy, the cultural foundations of public policy institutions and the influence of culture on public policy outcomes.
Expected learning outcomes
Students will be able to identify how culture explains variations in public policy content, institutions and outcomes in different countries. This will equip them with a greater understanding of the public policy issues that are faced by the different countries from which they come and how these might be solved.
