The study of public policy at CEU is rooted in the university’s mission to promote open societies as well as a conviction that a combination of different social science methods is required to address the complex challenges of reform and good governance. The decision to offer programs in public policy a decade ago also involved the practical recognition that on the global, national, and local levels of policymaking, there was – and is – an increasing demand for analysts from developing and transition countries.
