1 New York University s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service Participatory Policy Making: Knowledge Production, Competing Interests, and Advancing Inclusive Policy Outcomes in the Public Sphere Course Number: P Professor: C. Nicole Mason Fall 2009 Office: Puck 3084 Time: Wednesdays, 6:45 p.m.-8:25 p.m. Location: Bobst Library Room LL151 Phone: Office Hours: Wednesdays 3:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m. and by appointment Course Description: The policy making process is complex with a host of actors and competing interests. Often, there is a gap between the needs of communities and policies enacted at the local, state and federal levels. In this course, we will explore the challenges as well as opportunities for creating and enacting effective public policies. Specifically, we will examine what counts as knowledge or evidence in the policy making process; how the opinions and experiences of marginalized groups are taken into account or consideration; and the ways in which communities and non-profit organizations mobilize to have their needs met and voices heard in the public sphere. The main objective of this course is to expose students to current and relevant policy discussion and debates. Upon completion of this course, students should: (1) have gained a more thorough understanding of the co-production of knowledge and organizing frameworks used by advocates and non-profit leaders to have their needs met in the public sphere; (2) an understanding of the significance of public opinion, framing, and agenda setting to the policy making process; (3) understand the role of discrimination and historic inequalities in the distribution and allocation of resources in society; and (4) be better prepared to analyze, discuss, and write about key issues in public policy. For this course, we will rely mainly on articles, text of legislation, and writings of policy analysts, practitioners, and advocates. Additionally, we will use case studies, articles, and other materials to help gain a deeper and fuller understanding of how and under what circumstances advocates, citizens and communities are able to secure public policy wins. COURSE FORMAT There are seven classes over the course of the semester. As such, student involvement and engagement is crucial to the success of our time together. Students will be expected to attend all classes and participate in the class discussion. We will engage the weekly material through interactive discussions, summary lectures, and group presentations.
