Public target space as key factor for public policy implementation

Luminița Gabriela POPESCU
National University of Political and Administrative Studies Bucharest, Romania

Abstract. The present study focuses on reducing the potential failures met while implementing a new public policy .A determining element for the success of implementing a new public policy, as we are going to demonstrate in this study, is the compatibility between the model of the proposed public policy and the target public space, characterized by a high degree of inertia and manifest tendencies when maintaining the status quo.

How could there be a compatibility, on the one hand between a public policy whose vision is based on the changing of institutions, organisations and people, and on the other hand the unreformed public space, aligned to obsolete guidelines?

Which are the necessary approaches to achieve compatibility between the models of policies and the target space? What strategies must be chosen?

How must efforts and the resources in the public space be calibrated and oriented so that they become compatible with the model chosen by the policy-makers?

The answers to these questions constitute the main objectives of this study, and the approach initiated to accomplish that meant, firstly, configuring a link between the strategic thinking on which elaborating a public policy is based, the different typologies of the target public space and the calibration of the efforts and resources pegged to them

Keywords: target public space, policy process, adaptive organizational, culture of target public space.
