WORKSHOP OVERVIEW

Have you ever wondered how things work in government, and who does what? This introductory one-day workshop provides an overview of who does what, when, and how in Manitoba’s political system.

Workshop participants will learn:

  • How government is organized
  • How public policy is created; including how a problem is defined, how potential solutions are developed and chosen, how public policy is developed, how public policy is implemented (including through partnerships with the voluntary sector), and how public policy is evaluated.

ABOUT THE FACILITATORS

Karine Levasseur, Ph.D


Karine is an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Studies at the University of Manitoba. She earned her PhD. in the School of Public Policy and Administration at Carleton University. While Karine has many research interests, she is particularly interested in how governments in Canada relate (or do not relate) to voluntary organizations. Her research explores how voluntary organizations can become more meaningfully involved in public policy development, and not just resigned to implement public policy decisions made without their involvement.
