Module overview

Governments everywhere encounter several challenges in carrying out their responsibilities and appear to be "stuck" in their delivery. Both wealthy nations and those in the Global South have difficulty implementing policies and providing for their citizens. Using evidence-based academic work, the module aims to provide students with a critical framework to understand and assess the main implementation difficulties that governments are currently confronting. We shall discuss the limits of the generalisability of the results to specific situations.
