Policy transfer analysis seeks to make sense of the cross-cultural
transfer of knowledge about institutions, policies or delivery
systems in an era of globalization. The purpose of this volume is
to evaluate how useful policy transfer analysis is as a
descriptive, explanatory and prescriptive theory of policy change.
It provides both a response to its critics and it presents a
variety of new directions for studying processes of policy
transfer. The chapters proceed from an underlying assumption about
the field of enquiry; that policy transfer analysis alone cannot
provide a general explanatory theory of policy change but when
combined with other approaches an empirically grounded account of
policy change can be developed. Hence each of the chapters adopt a
methodological pluralism in which complementary theories of policy
development are combined in order to develop a theory of policy
change that accounts for the role of particular agents of policy
transfer in forging policy change. This is an important
contribution to our understanding of the impact of globalization on
domestic policy formulation. This book was previously published as
a special issue of Policy Studies.
