This course, like all courses, focuses on experiential learning through applying design thinking to real world governance challenges.  However, due to the nature of the subject matter and the diversity of the backgrounds of the students in our classroom, it is important we establish a foundation in existing analytical approaches to improving governance.  We also believe it is critical to reflect on the utility of design thinking tools and discuss alternate design processes.  Below are the readings we have aggregated to this end.
