CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Issue of Policy and Society on Institutional entrepreneurship and institutional change in public policy making
Special Issue Editors:
Caner Bakir, Koc University
Darryl Jarvis, The Hong Kong Institute of Education
We welcome papers on any aspect of institutional/policy entrepreneurship and institutional/policy change from all methodological and academic perspectives. We especially encourage submissions that explicitly engage with the agency of individual actors who initiate and implement institutional change in bureaucratic settings and submissions that attempt to bridge the gulf between institutional theory and public policy approaches. We also encourage conceptual and empirical contributions that address one or more of the following:
· When, why and how does institutional entrepreneurship and reform in bureaucracies take place?
· What are the enabling conditions for the agency of individual actors in policy and institutional change processes?
· How and why do various macro-level (structural and institutional) and micro-level (organizational and/or individual agency) factors affect institutional entrepreneurship and policy/institutional change?
