Responsible Governance

Course Description

Responsibility in implementing public policies is the purpose of public management in a democratic society.  This course provides an analytic lens for understanding the rules, norms, processes and practices that incorporate values into administrative decisions.  We use both normative and positive theoretical arguments to understand how responsible action combines accountability with discretionary action.  To bring theory to bear on practice, we evaluate difficult cases—historical and contemporary, domestic and international—in light of these arguments.
