â€œPolicy-making and its subsequent implementation is necessary to deal with societal problems.â€ (Janssen, Wimmer, & Deljoo, 2015)
â€œPolicy-making is driven by the need to solve societal problems and should result in interventions to solve these societal problems.â€ (Janssen et al., 2015)
â€œExamples of societal problems are unemployment, pollution, water quality, safety, criminality, well-being, health, and immigration.â€ ( Janssen et al., 2015 )
The author of chapter 1 discusses several developments that influence policy-making. Select one of the developments in chapter 1 and describe how that development can influence policy to solve a specific problem.
You must do the following:
1) Create a new thread. As indicated above, select one of the developments in chapter 1 and describe how that development can influence policy to solve a specific problem.
B) Select AT LEAST 3 other students’ threads and post substantive comments on those threads by Sunday at midnight, evaluating the pros and cons of that studentâ€™s recommendations. Your comments should be engaging and extend the conversation started with the thread.
ALL original posts and comments must be substantive and include APA support. (I’m looking for about a paragraph – not just “I agree.”)
NOTE: These discussions should be informal discussions, NOT research papers. If you MUST directly quote a resource, then cite it properly. However, I would much rather simply read your words.
