Public Policy. Public policy is one way that society addresses
social problems through the use of laws and regulations
adopted by governments. In this discussion, review the
American Sociological Association article Sociology and Public
Policy and address the following:
a. Consider and explain the following statement, “Public policy
is both what government does and what it does not do”
(Theodoulou & Kofinis, 2012).
b. What determines whether a policy is enacted or not?
c. Who holds the power and authority to create, enact and/or
change public policy?
d. What is the difference between public versus private
concerns in relation to policy making and the government’s
role in this process?
e. Describe two ways that social science research helps to
design good public policies. Why are social science research
skills important for analyzing the impact of existing policies?
