Abstract: This chapter takes stock of the contributions made by the preceding chapters in this book to the theme of social values and public policy and the extent to which they are relevant to citizenship and governance. The chapters in this book together argue very strongly that social values occupy a central place in understanding and evaluating public policy. The chapters in Part I of this book can all be taken as attempts to find out how far the boundary of public power should be pushed back or pulled in, or how far public power should be invoked to intervene matters that may be seen as causing worries or concerns at least in the eyes of some people in the society. The chapters in Part II explore how far different social values should be appealed to in justifying or criticizing various public policies. This chapter further investigates more generally various approaches that can be used to handle multiple values and the challenging issue of taking different and competing social values into consideration at the same time. Finally, this chapter examines how the discussion in various chapters in this book is relevant to citizenship and governance.
