Public Policy Circulation

Arenas, Agents and Actions

Edited by Tom Baker and Christopher Walker

Policy-making is more globally connected than ever before. Policy ideas, experiences and expertise circulate with great speed and over great distances. But who is involved in moving policy, how do they do it, and through which arenas? This book examines the work involved in policy circulation. As the first genuinely interdisciplinary collection on policy circulation, the book showcases theoretical approaches from across the social sciences—including policy diffusion, transfer and mobility—and offers empirical perspectives from across the world.

Chapter 11: Policy narratives and policy transfer mechanisms: towards a research agenda

Titilayo Soremi


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.
