Design of Public Institutions

Students in this concentration apply organizational, political, and economic analysis to the study of policy-making and policy-implementing institutions. The emphasis is on the causes of differences in the performance of alternative forms of institutions, and on the social forces that influence the kinds of policy institutions that are adopted.
