  4. Making Policies Work

    Making Policies Work

    Edited by Giliberto Capano, Michael Howlett, M. Ramesh, Altaf Virani
    Policy design efforts are hampered by inadequate understanding of how policy tools and actions promote effective policies. The objective of this book is to address this gap in understanding by proposing a causal theory of the linkages between policy action and policy effects. Adopting a mechanistic perspective, the book identifies the causal processes that activate effects and help achieve goals. It thus offers a powerful analytical tool to both scholars and practitioners of public policy seeking to design effective policies. Learn More

    Edited by Padraic Kenna, Sergio Nasarre-Aznar, Peter Sparkes, Christoph U. Schmid

This book provides a comparative assessment of human rights, administrative, procedural and public policy norms, in the context of eviction, across a number of European jurisdictions. Through this comparison the book exposes the emergence of consistent, Europe-wide standards and norms. Learn More

    A Transatlantic History of Public Administration

    Fritz Sager, Christian Rosser, Céline Mavrot, Pascal Y. Hurni

  12. Varieties of Capital Cities

    Varieties of Capital Cities

    David Kaufmann
    The political and symbolic centrality of capital cities has been challenged by increasing economic globalization. This is especially true of secondary capital cities; capital cities which, while being the seat of national political power, are not the primary economic city of their nation state. David Kaufmann examines the unique challenges that these cities face entering globalised, inter-urban competition while not possessing a competitive political economy. Learn More

  15. Policy Problems and Policy Design

    Policy Problems and Policy Design

    B. Guy Peters
    Public policy can be considered a design science. It involves identifying relevant problems, selecting instruments to address the problem, developing institutions for managing the intervention, and creating means of assessing the design. Policy design has become an increasingly challenging task, given the emergence of numerous ‘wicked’ and complex problems. Much of policy design has adopted a technocratic and engineering approach, but there is an emerging literature that builds on a more collaborative and prospective approach to design. This book will discuss these issues in policy design and present alternative approaches to design. Learn More

  16. The Evaluation of Complex Infrastructure Projects

    The Evaluation of Complex Infrastructure Projects

    Lasse Gerrits, Stefan Verweij
    Infrastructure projects are notoriously hard to manage so it is important that society learns from the successes and mistakes made over time. However, most evaluation methods run into a conundrum: either they cover a large number of projects but have little to say about their details, or they focus on detailed single-case studies with little in terms of applicability elsewhere. This book presents Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA) as an alternative evaluation method that solves the conundrum to enhance learning. Learn More

  18. Handbook on the Politics of Higher Education

    Handbook on the Politics of Higher Education

    Edited by Brendan Cantwell, Hamish Coates, Roger King
    Understanding the politics of Higher Education is becoming more important as the sector is increasingly recognised as a vital source of innovation, skills, economic prosperity, and personal wellbeing. Yet key political differences remain over such issues as who should pay for higher education, how should it be accountable, and how we measure its quality and productivity. Particularly, are states or markets the key in helping to address such matters. The Handbook provides framing perspectives and perspectives, chapters on funding, governance and regulation, and pieces on the political economy of higher education and on the increased role of external stakeholders and indicators.

  20. Citizenship in Segmented Societies

    Citizenship in Segmented Societies

    Edited by Francis Cheneval, Mónica Ferrin
    European Union citizenship is increasingly relevant in the context of both the refugee crisis and Brexit, yet the issue of citizenship is neither new nor unique to the EU. Using historical, political and sociological perspectives, the authors explore varied experiences of combining multiple identities into a single sense of citizenship. Cases are taken from Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Spain, Switzerland and Turkey. These examples of communities being successfully incorporated into one entity are exceptionally useful for addressing the challenges facing the EU today. Learn More
