Our team members at the workshop «Studying Policy Tools: Procedural Tools and Instrument Calibrations» in Melbourne

The workshop was organized by the National University of Singapore and the University of Melbourne. The event was held in a unique format - a detailed discussion of the prepared articles made within the framework of one theoretical and methodological approach. This format allows to prepare a special issue on the relevant topic of science of public administration (policy science) with a detailed analysis of the proposed theory and its many-sided empirical verification.

 

Two gaps in particular motivated this workshop. The first deals with inadequate attention to the complexity of contemporary policy tools and mixes, many of which include tools of a ‘procedural’ or process nature. Thesecond concern is that both procedural and substantive tools need to be operationalized at a micro-level if they are to be effective.
