The global transfer of policyHulme, Robert I.; Hulme, Moira; Univesity of Chester ; University of Glasgow (2008-06-20)This book chapter contrasts 'policy transfer' and 'travelling and embedded policy'. Policy transfer helps to explain the use of knowledge from elsewhere in decision-making processes. Travelling and embedded policy sheds light on the complex relationships between supranational, cross-national, regional and sectoral influences on policy making. Examples of education policy are used to illustrate the processes of global social policy making. In doing so, the chapter offers a particular focus on how global social policy agendas are mediated or negotiated by policy communities and networks in producing 'local' policy settlements.
