Public Policies and Social Changes

The research activities of the department are focused mainly on public policy analysis; much of its research is devoted to: policy description; defining and clarifying problems and assessing needs; assessment of the relative desirability of policies; outcome analysis; social impact assessments, monitoring and exploration of the social changes generated by policies, etc. The department also works on conceptual and methodological issues in the field. Inasmuch as public policies are closely connected to the participation of members or citizens in decision making in an organization or society, research activities also include issues of citizenship, social movements, and democratic political institutions.
