PSIA, Master in International Public Management
A ﬁnal assessment : written examination (2 hours) (40%) ; Attendance and participation during the course (20%). Workload : One article (5 – 10 pages) to read before each course. Course Description : Since global health issues are at the top of the international agenda, researchers and politics are discussing who should be in charge of global health governance. Indeed, the international landscape of actors involved in global health activities has moved extremely fast. Although bilateral or multilateral agencies remain important players, they have to compose with new organizations, which only characteristic they share is to be Non State Actors (NGOs, Family Foundations, Public-Private partnerships, Companies). During this course we'll try to understand who those non state actors are and how they ﬁt in the global health arena. Given their diversity, NGOs will be covered more extensively. This focus will also allow us to discuss the project cycle, action strategies, technical assistance, and will end with a simulation over a case study. Required reading : Les ONG, Philippe Ryfman, éd.

Course Description : This course aims at developing skills for understanding and designing public policy in a context of growing internationalization and globalization. The class trains students to write a professional policy paper. The course introduces students to the key theoretical controversies developed by the academic literature and relevant for public policy analysis and decision-making, presents the relevant data available from policy think tanks and international institutions, and discusses policy casestudies borrowed from a wide comparative and international background. The course proposes a speciﬁc methodology to critically understand and deliberate about policy design. The discussion is centered on the dynamics and on the inﬂuence of institutions, and on the selection of instruments in the conduct of public policy. Students actively participate to the class in forming teams to prepare a policy case-study. They characterize a policy situation at the international, national or local level, and critically analyze a range of policy options. They collectively discuss competing policy alternatives to formulate a series of policy recommendations. The course is validated with the submission of a professional policy-paper of international standard. Required reading : Kraft (Michael E.), Furlong Scott R., Public Policy.
