This course examines theories and methods of policy development and analyses with a specific focus on social policies that affect socially and economically disadvantaged populations. Emphasis is placed on both qualitative and quantitative analysis approaches in order to equip students with knowledge and techniques essential to policy development and analysis and to enable them to be critical consumers of it. In addition to policy analysis and evaluation tools, this course stresses the political aspects of policy-making and helps students to practice policy analysis from the perspectives of disadvantaged populations. Utilizing a trauma-informed and human rights perspective, students seek to improve the lives of people by developing social policies and programs based on scientific analysis and evaluations.
