International workshop ‘Policy Advice in Comparative Perspective: Shaping Political Discourse and Policy Change in Post-Communist Countries and the Global South’

17/05/2017 - 20:58 Uldanov Artem

Knowledge is an integral part of policy making in modern societies at the local, national and supranational levels. But policy advice and expertise is organized in different ways in different locations. Despite having collected much empirical evidence about the activities of different types of policy advisors, such as think tanks, diverse intellectual communities, and policy workers, however, the answer to several fundamental research questions on the topic remain unclear. Two key question which this workshop will address are “what is the impact of policy advisors on policy change compared to other factors involved in policy dynamics?” And “what combination of actors and advisors is needed to generate successful public policy recommendations?”

Handbook of Policy Formulation

19/04/2017 - 00:17 Howlett MIchael

Policy formulation relies upon the interplay of knowledge-based analysis of issues with power-based considerations, such as the political assessment of the costs and benefits of proposed actions, and its effects on the partisan and electoral concerns of governments. Policy scholars have long been interested in how governments successfully create, deploy and utilise policy instruments, but the literature on policy formulation has, until now, remained fragmented. This comprehensive Handbook unites original scholarship on policy tools and design, with contributions examining policy actors and the roles they play in the formulation process.
