This blog is managed by Stefania Ravazzi, professor of Public policy analysis at the University of Torino, and aims at facilitating the understanding of what public policies are, how they work and how social scientists analyze and interpret them. It should serve primarily students, but also journalists, politicians, civil servants and ordinary citizens interested in particular issues and topics. Articles, citations and posts which I upload periodically on the blog should serve in particular to ‘imagine’ (not only to frame conceptually) public policies, their complexities and the most accredited theories that circulate today in the academic community.
