Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The role of comparative analysis in policy studies has gained increasing importance in recent years. Comparative policy studies aims at comparing and contrasting public policy making across sectoral, regional and national boundaries in order to overcome challenges in the formulation, implementation and evaluation of public policy. This book is the first in its field to provide scholars and policy-makers with both compelling comparative research design and methodology in one place. In contrast to general manuals on comparative methodology, this book specifically addresses key research design and methodological challenges that comparative policy studies typically faces and draws on rich empirical illustrations. Written by an outstanding cast of contributors, this volume is essential reading for scholars and students of comparative public policy.
