PPG2022H: Moral Foundations of Public Policy
April 26, 2014 | By Public Policy Admin |
MPP students are to complete either PPG2011H or PPG2022H.
Moral questions abound in framing public policy. What are the legitimate aims of the state? How should costs and benefits of policy choices be measured and distributed across the population? And what ethical constraints are there on the pursuit of state aims? This course will explore these theoretical questions in the context of several distinct policy areas, including health care, environmental protection, tax and economic policy, family policy, and drug control.
