You can tackle this task in various ways. Here are some guiding points:
A. If you focus on the first part of the policy cycle:
• choose a policy addressing a social issue – give details: name of the policy, when it was launched, by who etc
• What issue is this policy addressing? and explore how did it get on the government’s agenda?
• Discuss the general framing of the issue and the socio-economic and political context
• Outline main policy objectives – what is it trying to achieve?
• Discuss aspects relevant to the formulation process (who was involved, what evidence underpinned the debates in the formulation stage etc)
• Offer a theoretical reflection on the process of framing and formulating the policy.
B. If you focus on the second part of the policy cycle:
• choose a policy addressing a social issue – give details: name of the policy, when it was launched, by who etc
• What are the policy’s more specific instruments?
• Discuss aspects relevant to implementation: who are the implementation agencies, what structures and processes have been put in place to implement the policy
• Are there any variations locally in terms of implementation?
• Discuss potential local barriers to implementation
• has the policy been evaluated – discuss.
• Offer a theoretical reflection on the implementation process.
