The Journal of Public Policy, a Cambridge University Press journal, applies social science theories and concepts to significant political, economic and social issues and to the ways in which public policies are made. JPP publishes articles that cut across disciplines with authors coming from a variety of social science disciplines and from several countries around the world, representing a diversity of perspectives and issues.
