Approaches to the Study of Social Policy Making
The paper is divided into three parts. In the first part a typology of traditions in the study of social policy is put forward. This is followed by a review of approaches to the study of social policy making, which examines critically the work of a number of writers who have contributed to this area of work. Then, in the third part of the paper, some suggestions are made for the closer linking of policy analysis and social policy.
