Reframing Public Policy: Discursive Politics and Deliberative Practices

In recent years a set of radical new approaches to public policy has been developing. These approaches, drawing on discursive analysis and participatory deliberative practices, have come to challenge the dominant technocratic, empiricist models in policy analysis. Author Frank Fischer brings together and critically examines this new work. He describes the theoretical, methodological, and political requirements and implications of the new “post-empiricist” approach to public policy.

The volume includes a discussion of the social construction of policy problems, the role of interpretation and narrative analysis in policy inquiry, the dialectics of policy argumentation, and the uses of participatory policy analysis. The book is great for those studying, researching, or formulating public policy. Oxford University Press (2003).
