Make practical and constructive policy recommendations through a “problem-solution-oriented approach”
Senior Associate Professor
Solve regional, domestic, and global challenges
The new discipline of public policy is different from traditional academic disciplines in that it takes a “problem-solution-oriented approach” to society. More specifically, this discipline is characterized by not only analyzing and explaining a broad range of issues, such as global environmental problems, domestic measures for the aging population, and declining birthrates, regional security and urban problems, but also considering practical and multifaceted measures and making policy recommendations. Students are expected to graduate from ICU as “responsible global citizens and field-oriented professionals” capable of making constructive policy recommendations.
