System zarządzania polityką - propozycja uniwersalnych ram koncepcyjnych
Article proposes a universal framework for a holistic analysis of management systems of public policies. This framework consists of three main entities: a system, an environment of the system and fl ows between system and its surroundings as well as within system, between its elements. Article claims that every policy management system consists of typical elements: stocks of resources (staff, structures and procedures, fi nancial and technical resources) and groups of processes (strategic, operational and learning processes). The proposed framework is well grounded in the empirical research of the Cohesion Policy in Poland. Definitions and examples are provided together with a discussion on advantages and challenges in using this framework for analysis of public policies.
