Often new public policy is detected at the launch of a new program. While much attention is paid to getting a new policy approved, the true impact is not fully appreciated until implementation. This webinar sheds light on current policy implementation discourse, provides rural examples, and discusses different action approaches.
On November 28th, RDI will host two live webinar presenters:
Dr. Lars Hallstrom is the Director of the Alberta Centre for Sustainable Rural Communities. The Centre is charged with linking the research, outreach and educational capacity of the University of Alberta with students, researchers, rural communities, rural community organizations and policy makers at multiple levels across the province, nationally, and internationally. Dr. Hallstrom’s work focuses on comparative environmental policy, and particularly on the intersection of politics, science and public policy.
Dr. Charles Conteh is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Brock University. He specializes in Public Policy & Management, Political Economy and Governance. His current research focuses on governance structures and processes in complex and dynamic policy systems, particularly examining collaborative and strategic policy formulation and implementation. Dr. Conteh currently investigates how local, regional and national economies are reinventing themselves in the face of seismic global economic changes.
