Stages of Public Policy

Stages of Public Policy

 

Public policy does not occur all at once. Before the public policy process begins, a determination is made that a problem warrants change through public policy. The public policy-making process occurs in stages which include agenda setting, policy formulation, policy implementation, policy evaluation, policy change, and policy termination. Each stage has its own purpose and each contributes to the overall public policy-making process. In addition there are environmental factors or variables that might impact the public policy process at each stage. For example, social factors, economic factors, and political factors influence the public policy process at each stage. To gain a better understanding of public policy-making, it is important to examine each stage of the process and recognize the differences among them.
