T03P08 - Democracy Institutions and Public Policy Performance

Topic : Policy and Politics sponsored by Policy & Politics Journal

Panel Chair : Prof.Dr. Hai Phu DO - haiphudo@gmail.com

Objectives and Scientific Relevance of the panel

In this panel a selection of papers may be considered for the Policy & Politics journal.

 

 

Research on the impact of institutional rules on public policy is still in a relatively early phase (Immergut, 2003). Policy making is always a matter of choice under constraints. According to Goodin and Rein and Moran (2008), the willingness of people to do what policies ask them and the willingness of electors to endorse the policies. Institutions have affected the policies and policies have changed our understanding of institutions, so public policy study help an institutional researcher have an interpretation of politics. It is important to know the institutional rules on policy decision making and the interaction effects of institutional rules with political and social background in the policy cycle from policy planning, policy formulation and implementation, policy evaluation. This panel designed to focus specially on the policy performance which is dependent on the quality of democracy, considering as the institutional rules substantially generated for suitable outcomes in certain policy fields. On the dimensions of the democracy, there is a group of key variables which related directly to the quality democracy. They are rules of law, electoral process, civil rights and political liberties, access to information. The analysis of institutional rules is observed in the president system, both head of state and head of government with/without prime ministers, the  both a president and a prime minister in the semi-presidential system, the prime minister is the active head of the executive branch of government and also leader of the legislature in parliamentarianism, the system of constitutional monarchies with ceremonial monarchs, the directorial system contains elements of the presidential and the parliamentary system. They are considered as the impact of policy studies on the institutional theory.
