Policy Learning and Policy Failure: Definitions, Dimensions and Intersections
Policy and Politics
Reason for embargo
Policy failures present a valuable opportunity for policy learning, but public officials have failed to learn valuable lessons from these experiences. The studies in this volume investigate this broken link. This introduction to the issue defines policy learning and failure, before organising the main studies in these fields along the key dimensions of: processes, products and analytical levels. We continue with an overview of the special issue articles, outlining where they sit in the wider literature and how they link learning and failure. We conclude by sketching a research agenda linking policy scholars with policy practice.
