Abstract

Policy analysis offers a wide range of theories for analyzing how policy is made and implemented. In light of the inherent and increasing complexity of policy issues and processes, it is important to assess how current policy theories enable us to analyze this complexity and in which ways they could be further developed based on complexity-inspired approaches. This panel aims to advance understanding of how complexity matters to policy actors and how to interpret complex policy issues, processes and outcomes. Papers offer different theoretical perspectives on policy and complexity and apply these to a variety of complex policy issues.
