Panel on the Diffusion of Public Policies

Thu, March 5, 2009 • 3:30 PM - 6:30 PM • BAT 5.108

How do policies diffuse across political systems—nations, US states, or other kinds of ‘policy producing’ units? Do they systematically learn from the trials of earlier policy adopters? Do they imitate without analysis in a frenzy of contagion? Are the new policies all determined by internal politics, with nothing to do with either learning or contagion?

Panelists:
Graeme Boushey, San Francisco State University
Andy Karch, University of Texas
Bryan Jones, University of Texas, convenor

Sponsored by: Policy Agendas Project, Department of Government
