Chapter Three: Social Welfare Policy Analysis

Krager and Stoesz (2011) define social welfare policy research (analysis) as a systematic investigation of a social policy or set of policies. They also state that all well-framed policy frameworks include the following eight key elements:

  • Systematic analysis
  • Understanding that social policy is context sensitive
  • Employ rational methods of inquiry
  • Explicit, succeeding analysis should approximate same conclusion
  • Based on commitment to largest possible social benefit, least cost
  • Attempt to take into account unintended consequences
  • Consider alternative social policies
  • Examine impact on other social policies, social problems, and overall public good
  • In your own words, describe and explain the 8 elements listed above. Be sure to use academic sources to support your comments.
