External Forces on Policymaking
There are many forces influential in policymaking.
Policymaking within the criminal justice system is
heavily impacted by
public opinion.
With varying public opinion on a specific issue, our criminal justice system has an ongoing challenge to establish a sound policy.
Discuss the ways policy is influenced by public opinion,
as well as political, economic, legal, and ideological forces.
Prepare a post detailing the extent to which you believe each of these five forces should
play a role in policy formulation.
