Welcome to the Public Policy Hub

Public policy is the action of the government to address a public issue through the state’s institutions.  For example, education, work and employment, health, crime and justice, social policy and the environment.

Or in other words, public policy affects everyone, everyday.

This Hub is designed to both help you learn more about public policy, and to provide a gateway for researching the area in greater depth. It has three sections:-

  • Structures:  Outlines the various institutions and structures that policy operates within.
  • Policies:  Explains public policy issues using four key policy areas as examples.
  • Resources: Provides resources to guide your independent study.
