This important Handbook brings together preeminent scholars, both from Global South and North, sharing their comparative and international perspectives on the topic. Their original contributions cover the key issues and questions around policy transfer research.

Offering a pluralist perspective and focusing on critical areas of research including policy transfer, diffusion, circulation and mobilities, this Handbook overcomes epistemological and methodological cleavages in the field. Opening with a series of discussions on the concepts and advancements in the study of policy transfer, the Handbook moves to an examination of agents and structures involved in the process. The Handbook also sheds light on the role of culture and context, with chapters devoted to Asian, Latin American and European particularities. Altogether, chapters illuminate how rich and provocative the current debate on the interpretation of policies moving across borders is and the vibrancy of the area’s research within the broad planet of public policy analysis.

Presenting a groundbreaking and unique contribution to the area of public policy analysis, the Handbook of Policy Transfer, Diffusion and Circulation will be a useful resource for well-established scholars, researchers, policy-makers and both post-graduate and undergraduate students in this field.
Critical Acclaim
‘This very impressive collection of chapters by established and emerging scholars from different streams of policy transfer provides new insights into the mechanisms and dynamics of policy transfer. Especially important are the several chapters detailing the agents, structures, and outcomes of the travel of policies and their components across countries in the Global South and from them to the Global North.’
– Grace Skogstad, University of Toronto, Canada

‘This Handbook collects an impressive number of contributions on the state of the art in policy transfer studies. Approaching major substantive areas, methodological approaches, policy instruments and policy fields from a global perspective, the Handbook is a must-read for researchers and students of policy studies.’
– Alketa Peci, Fundação Getulio Vargas, Brazil

‘An admirably global, conceptually inclusive guide to contemporary analyses and discussions about how, why, and with what consequences policies travel. The Handbook is particularly valuable for how it highlights the contributions of Global South contexts and authors in a literature that has tended to be too Northern-focused.’
– Eugene McCann, Simon Fraser University, Canada.
