About the course 'Public Policy and Values'

Values matter for the choice, design, and implementation of various public policies, as well as for how policymakers, civil servants, stakeholders, civil society organizations, and ordinary citizens think about and behave in relation to these public policies. Moreover, the way in which different kinds of values (e.g., moral, political, social, economic, epistemic, aesthetic) should shape, inform, guide, or constrain policymaking is subject to pervasive and persistent social and political disagreement and power relations.

To understand how different kinds of values bear on policymaking and how relevant value disagreements should be addressed, we need an approach that is both theoretically rigorous and practically useful. This course presents such an approach by focusing on the way in which the choice, definition, and operationalization of different values through policy standards, targets, and indicators influences how value is – or is not – realised through different public policies and government action.
