Research School - Welfare State and diversity "The role of ideas, discourses and frames in welfare policies"
Aalborg, Aalborg University, Denmark
Policy studies increasingly focus on the role of ideas. It is not altogether a new insight that ideas matter in policy making, but it is a new phenomenon that it has become a dominant approach. This Ph.D. course offers a vide variety of theories and methods that theorize on how and under what conditions ideas influence policy processes. This includes among others a what??s the problem approach, framing analysis, discourse analyses and different strands of new institutionalisms. The lectures will approach questions such as how do ideas become embedded in power structures, what is the relation between problem representations and policy outputs, why do new ideas appear, and is it possible to identify causal effects of ideas? We invite Ph.D. papers that deal with theoretical and methodological issues and examples of empirical analysis of the role of ideas.
