A look at the process through which public policy is made.  This presentation begins by looking at what public policy is and the different types of policy, followed by an exploration of the process of policy making in general and then a look at a few examples of different policy domains to illustrate that process. The presentation also discusses some of the history of successful social movements in America to illustrate how citizens had engaged the policy process to their advantage.
