About Harvard Kennedy School
Harvard Kennedy School’s mission is to improve public policy and leadership so people can live in societies that are more safe, free, just, and sustainably prosperous. By combining cutting-edge research, the teaching of outstanding students, and direct interaction with practitioners, Harvard Kennedy School has an impact on solving public problems that no other institution can match.
About the collection
The Case Program is the world's largest producer and repository of case studies designed for teaching about how government works and how public policy is made. Harvard Kennedy School’s cases are written to facilitate discussion-based, interactive learning about both policy issues and management strategies in the public and not-for-profit sectors. Their professional case writers rigorously check the accuracy of the cases, which draw on candid interviews with decision makers themselves, as well as thorough document research. In that way, they represent a detailed and unrivalled body of information about the making of public policy and the administration of public institutions.
The cases are used in the Harvard Kennedy School's MPP, MPA and Executive Program curricula, and by colleges and universities worldwide at both the graduate and undergraduate level. The cases are also used by consulting firms looking for detailed and even-handed accounts of issues ranging from privatisation to press relations. They're used in government and corporate training programs as well.
