* Students explore ways in which public policies (and their impact) are analyzed using quantitative and qualitative methods. The results serve as a basis to formulate informed evidence-based policies, or to improve already implemented policies.
* Students learn to articulate relevant decision-making criteria for policy analysis.
* Students learn to adapt policy design to the particular context in which they should be implemented.

Formulation and implementation of public policies are an important responsibility of modern governments. More precisely, the potential impact of policies on the target groups, as well as the externalities they may generate, must be known to inform policy design. Yet, policies are often not “one size fit all”, and policy failures have been observed when transposing policies from developed to developing and emerging markets. Modern economic tools can help analyze the causal impact of specific polices, as well as compare results across different historical and country contexts.
