SOCL19062  Policy, Power & Politics

This course examines sociological theories that underpin the study of politics and the policy process. In particular, the course explores the nature of political socialisation, theories of power, and the dynamics of policy-making in Australia, as well as some of the analytical frameworks which have been developed in order to explain the political actors involved in the policy process and the ways in which policy decisions are made. The course considers Australia's three-tiered Federal system, the increasing importance of international organisations, and the difficulties of developing public policy within such a complex set of structures.
