1. Issue Emergence or Problem Definition: A previously unspecified issue, or an issue normally of private concern, becomes seen as a public problem that is rightly addressed by the action of governmental authorities. 2. Agenda-setting: This newly defined policy problem becomes part of the government action agenda. (The first and second stages are combined in many formulations of the model; other variants differentiate among levels of government agendas, for example, contrasting a broader institutional agenda with a more urgent decisional one.) 3. Alternative Selection: One solution to the policy problem is elevated above all others, for reasons both practical and political. 4. Enactment, Adoption, or Legitimation: The chosen policy solution takes on the force of law, either through legislation, executive order, court order, or some other mechanism of governmental authority. 5. Implementation: The policy solution is actually put into practice; in other words, this stage concerns what happens “on the ground” or “in the field.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
