The SPG Team hosted a research seminar on 16-17 April 2018. Authors who contribute to the Great Policy Successes volume and public policy scholars met in Utrecht to present and discuss 18 case studies, with a view towards early 2019 publication.
The Great Policy Successes volume aims to reset the agenda for teaching, research and dialogue on public policy performance which is currently dominated by the language related to shortcomings and failures. This is done through a series of in-depth case study on stand-out public policy accomplishments. The Great Policy Successes Seminar provided a platform for volume authors and public policy scholars to discuss conceptual, methodological, and theoretical related issues regarding to those cases.
