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.
