This chapter reviews various approaches available to making and analyzing public policy. It considers these as mechanisms of policy making within an overall strategic context and reviews them against outcomes. The approaches here include those mechanisms of policy making that are more formal, such as treaties which are seldom considered as policy shaping mechanisms, and, this book argues, have been of considerable importance within the UK context and policy transfer. The more informal means considered include policy communities and policy networks. The chapter also includes a short discussion on the emerging debate on policy mobility within this context. It also covers the effects of not making policy and concludes with an additional category on policy as fashion.

Keywords:   Strategy, Public policy, Agenda setting, Policy impulses, Policy transfer, Policy networks, Policy communities, Policy mobilities, Evidence-based policy making, Incrementalism
