Statul si Politicile Publice - The State and the Public Policies (Romanian version)


  • Ana-Maria AMBROSA

    () (“Petre Andrei” University from Iasi)


The state’s involvement in the management of social problems has followed a windy road during the last century, from the classical liberal laissez-faire to stressed and all-encompassing interventionism. The state’s action or non-action in relation to the regulating mechanisms of the social system has been defined as public policy. The approach to public policies from the perspective of political science encompasses two main intellectual traditions: the American actionalism/ communitarianism and the European institutionalism/ etatism. The development of the concept of public policy is currently marked by the challenges of globalisation and the emergence of non-state political, economic and social stakeholders that are more and more involved in community development processes.
