Course Description: This course focuses on the practices which contribute to good public governance. Students are empowered as future public leaders with the analytical skills to assess success and the practical skills to communicate the results of their analyses to both academic and applied audiences, in a range of policy domains. Firstly, the theoretical and practical concepts of success in public policies, public agencies, collaborations, and in local government are discussed. Each week, students work in groups to write and present blog posts (to be published on the Successful Public Governance research program web site). These memo-style blog entries begin as syntheses of canonical works, and advance through the term towards highlighting theoretical controversies and empirical applications, with the goal of developing innovative arguments and insights into the literature(s) on governance success. This format prepares students for positions of leadership in a range of disciplines by requiring not only thorough theoretical fluency and application familiarity, but also the ability to accessibly contextualize and communicate analytical results to academic and practitioner audiences.
