  1. The analysis of policy : understanding the process of policy development.

    Article - En anglais

    A key question in addiction studies is why do governments not readily adopt policies that research shows to be effective in reducing harm ?

    In this paper, it is argued that policy development can best be understood as a political activity, which is not necessarily scientific.

    A descriptive model of policy analysis is illustrated by case examples from alcohol and tobacco policy arenas.

    By understanding policy development as a process, it is suggested that policy advocates can match their strategies to the stages of the process, and thus raise the probability that the advocated policy will be adopted.
