Unit IV Scholarly Activity

Instructions

The art of crafting public policy can cause one group or participant(s) to benefit while creating issues or problems for another group. Examples may include:

  • the Patriot Act (security vs. privacy),
  • Affirmative Action (reverse discrimination),
  • race equality (racial tension), or
  • social safety net programs such as TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families), housing      assistance, SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program), etc..

Select a timely public policy example (still in effect) that has been designed to solve a public issue but may have affected another group in a negative manner. Identify all potential stakeholders, and explain the long-term and short-term implications relevant to the stakeholders. Also, explain the challenges involved in crafting the policy.

Your written response should be at least four-pages in length. Format your response using APA style. Be sure to include citations for any sources used to avoid plagiarism.
