Product description

Review

'A timely antidote to the siren song of populism, Hybrid Public Policy Innovations reminds us of the value of evidence-based policy. Grounded in theory, and illustrated with examples from schools to water, jobs to pensions, the highly qualified contributors to this book make a powerful case for solutions grounded in facts, reason and rigorous analysis.' - Andrew Leigh, Member of the Australian Parliament and author of Choosing Openness

 

'In a world where evidence and expertise are under sustained attack from well-resourced think tanks, major political parties and a large section of the media, it is important to restate the benefits of an evidence-based approach to public policy, leading to an approach that works with the strengths of the market, government intervention and civil society. This book is both a defence of evidence-based policy and a guide to recent innovations.' - John Quiggin, Australian Laureate Fellow in Economics, University of Queensland 

Product Description

Political discourse in much of the world remains mired in simplistic ideological dichotomies of market fundamentalism for efficiency versus substantial socialism for equity. Contemporary public policy design is far more sophisticated. It blends market, government and community tools to simultaneously achieve both equity and efficiency. Unlike in the twentieth century, this design is increasingly grounded in a deep evidence base derived by way of rigorous empirical techniques. A new paradigm is emerging: hybrid policies.


This volume provides a thorough introduction to this technical side of public policy analysis and development. It demonstrates that it is possible to go beyond ideology, and find there some powerful answers to our most pressing problems. An international team of experts, many of whom have experience with the design or implementation of hybrid policies, helps cover the behavioural, institutional and regulatory theories that inform the choice of policy objectives and lead the initial conception of solutions. They explain the reasons why we need evidence-based public policy and the state-of-the-art empirical techniques involved in its development. And they analyse a range of in-depth case studies from industrial relations to health care to illustrate how hybrids can intermingle the strengths of governments, markets and the community to combat the weaknesses of each and arrive at bipartisan outcomes.


Hybrid Public Policy Innovations is geared to scholars and practitioners of public policy administration and management who desire to understand the analytical reasons why policies are designed the way they are, and the purpose of evidence-gathering frameworks attached to policies at implementation.
