Book by former fellow Secchi published

Professor Leonardo Secchi, a former honorary fellow at the La Follette School, has published Public Policy Analysis: Diagnose Problems, Recommend Solutions. Written in Portuguese, the book is a practical manual for public policy analysis in higher education and a step-by-step guide for diagnosing problems and recommending solutions in the executive and legislative branches of federal, state, and local government.

Students in a La Follette School of Public Affairs’ class had their research paper presented to the prestigious National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in Washington, DC.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren highlighted research by La Follette School Director Susan Yackee and UW-Madison doctoral student Simon Haeder in a recent essay on RegBlog, an online source of regulatory news, analysis, and opinion based at the University of Pennsylvania’s law school. The essay provided several examples of corporate influence on government rule-making, also known as regulatory capture, including their study of the U.S. Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA).
