Public Policy in the Australian Journal of Political Science: a review
|dc.identifier.citation||Fenna, A. 2016. Public Policy in the Australian Journal of Political Science: a review. Australian Journal of Political Science. 50 (4): pp. 611-626.|
This paper surveys the contribution that articles on public policy have made to this journal in its first half-century. To help organise those contributions, the paper makes a rough distinction between works of a primarily explanatory nature and those that can be thought of as having a substantive focus on analysing particular policy areas or issues. It observes the paucity of policy studies in the 1960s and 1970; the rapid rise in the 1980s; and a plateauing and even perhaps decline after that. It notes the desultory interest in theoretical questions and welcome attempts to employ the comparative method.
