Policy Implementation – A synthesis of the Study of Policy Implementation and the Causes of Policy Failure

Landry Signé | March 01, 2017

What is implementation in public policy? What are the determinants of policy implementation and service delivery? What could be learned from the key moments of the study of policy implementation? This policy paper proposes a synthesis of the study of policy implementation and the cause of policy failure. It explains why critical differences often occur between the initially formulated goals of a public policy and the final outputs after its implementation. This insight is extremely important to understand and address the causes of policy failures and improve the policy-making process.
