Merlijn van Hulst's general interest is in sense and meaning making in politics, policy making and public administration. He specializes in narrative and framing analysis. He has been involved in a variety of research projects that focus on local governance and has also studied practitioners in urban neighbourhoods. At the moment his focus is on the police force.

Framing in policy making

Over the last years I investigated framing processes. Recently the American Review of Public Administration published the paper From Policy "Frames" to "Framing": Theorizing a More Dynamic, Political Approach. http://arp.sagepub.com/content/early/2014/05/28/0275074014533142.full.pdf+html This paper was written together with prof. dr. Dvora Yanow (Wageningen and Keele). Some time before Media, Culture & Society published a paper on narrative framing: http://mcs.sagepub.com/content/36/4/456.full.pdf+html This work was written in collaboration with Mirjam Siesling, Maartje van Lieshout and Art Dewulf.
