Concept Dictionary
Alphabetical listing of concepts and terms used in public policy and management

The Atlas Concept Dictionary provides links to about 1,000 concepts and terms used in the theory and practice of public policy and management. The concepts and terms have been selected and edited from a longer list of about 2,000 entries generated by graduate students from their MPP and MPA courses, and from glossaries in government agencies during their internship assignments. Click on the letter below or on the left to open the list of entries beginning with that letter. For a full page view of all the entries, click on View All. All the concepts and terms are assigned to subjects in Concept Map. For links to the teaching and advisory topics in the Atlas, see the Topic Encyclopedia.
