Public affairs is a catch-all term that includes public policy as well as public administration, both of which are closely related to and draw upon the fields of political science as well as economics. Public policy discussions are generally and consciously partisan, and we assume that participants in public policy discussion have a specific point of view which they seek to advance in the discussion. Public administration, on the other hand, generally claims to be non-partisan. It focuses on methods of public administration, illustrated by historical examples, recording outcomes.
