A Comparative Study of Recent Public Policies
Keywords:Public Policy; Bangladesh; Policymaking; Agenda; Decisions; Interests; Stakeholders; Resource
Public policymaking is not just a bare of administrative actions taken by the government but a series of activities that are driven by various social and political factors. Public policymaking in developing nations like Bangladesh is influenced by a complex socio-political context and experiences a variety of difficulties and obstacles. This attempt seeks to understand the policymaking process in Bangladesh taking into account factors of ‘change’ and ‘stability’ in policies and to explore the issues working behind policy formulation. This study adopts a qualitative research approach through case study analysis following different theories of policymaking. The findings reveal an interactive policy process where each policymaking process varies depending on its nature. The type of policy, interests of the stakeholders, calculation of resource gain (political and financial), organizational and political interests and utility of the policy have played key roles in the formulation of policy in Bangladesh.
