SCRA Policy Committee

Policy Connection

Public policy can be understood as a deliberate course of action that affects the people as a whole, now and in the future. (Cordray & Morphy, 2007). As you can see, this definition is broad and while the term public policy does have traditional undertones of a government-level intervention, our definition does not distinguish between governmental and non-governmental policies.
