Policy analysis in Taiwan

Edited by Yu-Ying Kuo

Policy analysis in Taiwan
The study of policy analysis in Taiwan began in the 1970s; however while other countries have recognised the need for detailed examination of the theory and practice of policy analysis at different levels of government, Taiwanese studies have remained limited.
This book brings together for the first time a team of experienced and highly respected researchers from across Taiwan with expertise in policy analysis theory and practice in specific areas of government as well as in non-governmental organisations. This is a well-structured volume which will be highly relevant for students and academics interested in understanding and analysing politics and policy making in Taiwan.

Features of the ILPA series include:

• a country-specific systematic study of policy analysis systems by government and non-governmental actors
• a history of the country’s policy analysis, empirical case studies and a comparative overview of alternative approaches
• a key reference collection for research and teaching in comparative policy analysis and policy studies
Yu-Ying Kuo is Professor and Chair of Public Policy and Management at Shih Hsin University, Taiwan.
