The major conceptualizations of the dynamics of the policy process—such as the multiple streams approach, the punctuated equilibrium framework, the advocacy coalition framework, and historical institutionalism— originated in the US. They have since been used to explain the dynamics of policy change and continuity in other jurisdictions. This panel examines how well these theories and Anglo-Saxon approaches more generally to public policy and administration have traveled beyond where they originated. Panelists examine how, if at all, they require modification to explain policy processes and public administration in other political systems, including those in the Global South.
