Politics and Policy Making in the UK



Cairney P & Kippin S (2023) Politics and Policy Making in the UK. Bristol: Bristol University Press.

Over the past decade, the UK has experienced major policy and policy making change. This text examines this shifting political and policy landscape while also highlighting the features of UK politics that have endured. Written by Paul Cairney and Sean Kippin, leading voices in UK public policy and politics, the book combines a focus on policy making theories and concepts with the exploration of key themes and events in UK politics, including: • developing social policy in a post-pandemic world; • governing post-Brexit; and • the centrality of environmental policy. The book equips students with a robust and up-to-date understanding of UK public policy and enables them to locate this within a broader theoretical framework.
