  • Abstract:

    Political parties and in particular governments often emphasise the range of policies adopted during a term of office. These represent lofty ideals and contain impressive missions and goals. However, the administrative requirements to give effect to these policies are often not discounted. In this article attention is devoted to the forces demanding the development of policies and the administrative implications of policies. The possible factors prohibiting the successful implementation of policies are also alluded to e.g. corruption, inefficiency and political interference in administration. The article mainly introduces the topic, it is a topic that requires more intensive research to be able to influence policy implementation.
