This textbook represents the collaborative work of social scientists in CEE with the assistant of several American colleagues to map out the emerging world of public policy analysis since the economic and political transition. The articles encompass a range of topics: approaches to public policy, various theories of public policy, the role of the state and bureaucracies, ethics, the public interest, the policy process, coordination, non-profit actors, budgeting, implementation, and substantive policies of education, health care, and social policy. The approaches are interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary. The chapters benefited from the two authors’ conferences that took place in Prague and Budapest in the late 1990s as the contributors shared ideas and gained insights from others. The results is a unique perspective from Central and Eastern Europe.
