The conference was designed to acquaint both policy scholars and practitioners with these alternative tools, and with the “tools approach” that focuses attention on them, and to establish an agenda for future action that might improve the operation of public programs by sensitizing policy makers and policy administrators to the distinctive features and operating demands of the various tools that public programs embody.
