Session of School of Public Policy Mother Teresa, April 5-7, 2019, Hotel Garden, Ohrid,


Public Policy: from Theory to Practice



This seminar was related to the general topic of the School of Public Policy as it aimed to improve the knowledge of the participants in the field of public policy. The seminar took place in the hotel Garden, Ohrid during the weekend 5-7 April 2019. Six alumni were invited to give introductory lectures and discuss public policies with the participants. Overall the specific objectives of the event were to increase the skills of the participants of the policy making process and to get acquainted with the theoretical and practical options for undertaking policy research. What are the theoretical postulates in political theory that inform debate? What are the policy recommendations of political theorists of liberal background vis-à-vis other academicians and practitioners? How can we square the circle in Macedonia, itself a multicultural society with own issues and problems? This seminar helped our participants to improve their knowledge and techniques in policy research and analysis in general. It is widely accepted that policy analysis is a technique used in public administration to enable civil servants to examine and evaluate the available options to implement the goals of elected officials. The methodology of the seminar was based on lectures followed by discussions among participants, as well as a simulation game. Specific tasks and roles were given to our participants by the lecturers. The Center for Research and Policy Making (CRPM) was the stakeholder involved in this seminar.
