The Restitution of Independence of Lithuania on 11 March 1990 as an Ideal Example of Application of a Policy Formation Model

Saulius Nefas


The article presents the conception of the process of public policy analysis of public policy scientists. The author has chosen the political process model of William N. Dunn, 2006, and, considering it as an ideal, analyses the public policy events in Lithuania before 11 March 1990 and on 11 March 1990 and proves that these events in Lithuania are an ideal example of the application of a policy formation model. The author applies the theoretical model of the public policy process to the case of Lithuania in 1990 by using the method of comparative analysis. The public policy formation model of Lithuania is analyzed based on authors, who are researchers of the public policy process—historians and contemporaries, participants of the declaration of the Act of Independence of 11 March 1990. This article seeks to present the Lithuanian discourse of the public policy analysis.
