CALL FOR PAPERS: ECPR 2021 – Panel on Policy Process Theories and Medium to Long-term Policy Change


Chairs: Arvind Lakshmisha (Universität Kassel) & Andreas Thiel

Discussants: Colette S. Vogeler (TU Braunschweig) and Elizabeth B. Baldwin (University of Arizona)

Policy process theories model policy change. Agency and different kinds overlaying structures (temporal, spatial, jurisdictional) and their interrelations play a role. In this panel we aim to discuss contributions that address medium to long term processes of change in policies and collective organization. We reflect, what role assumptions about agency and modes of choice play, and the conceptual and methodological strengths and weaknesses of various policy process theories in explaining change. Contributions that discuss and explain medium to long term change in policies and collective organization are invited to this debate.
