Chapter 11: Policy narratives and policy transfer mechanisms: towards a research agenda
This chapter introduces a research agenda and puts forward the claim that the Narrative Policy Framework (NPF) can be usefully employed to explore policy transfer mechanisms empirically. To support the claim, there is a review of the literature related to transfer mechanisms and the provisions of the NPF are used to explain the cases presented in the literature. Specifically, the NPF sheds light on how transfer mechanisms evolve and are differentiated based on their narrative components. In this contribution, five hypotheses linking transfer mechanisms and narrative elements are presented, which can be examined by policy transfer scholars.
