As governments change, governance matures, and new policy issues emerge, public policy must evolve and adapt to the new challenges.  Governments still play a dominant role, but non-government organizations and the private sector have assumed greater importance in the policy process. Depending on its type of government, its political system, and its stage of economic development, each country will have a unique policy process that accommodates inputs from the various stakeholders.  IPPAM graduates who have returned to their countries have been thrust to the vanguard of public policy, and must navigate these new frontiers in international public policy. We are fortunate to have IPPAM graduates from 4 countries who can describe the intricacies, nuances, and hazards in the new frontiers of public policy in their countries, and how their training at IPPAM prepared them for the challenges in this dynamic policy environment.
