With profound implications for policy studies, contributors instead treat policy’s movement as an active process of translation, in which policies are interpreted, inflected, and reworked as they change location. Mixing collectively written chapters with individual case studies of policies and practices, this book provides an exciting, accessible, and novel analytical and methodological foundation for rethinking policy studies through translation.
