Inhalt: "In the process of public policymaking, problems are conceptualized and brought to government for solution; governmental institutions formulate alternatives and select policy solutions; and those solutions get implemented, evaluated, and revised", maintains Paul Sabatier. Since the popular stages heuristic or "policy cycle" cannot act as a causal theory, and policy-making is increasingly complex, involving a wide range of actors over a long period of time, policy scholars in the field of process theories have dropped the traditional focus of political scientists on single institutions, or single levels of government. The seminar will introduce selected theories of the policy process and demonstrate how they have been applied in empirical studies in the field of migration and integration policies. We will read and discuss one original text on, for instance, advocacy coalition framework, multiple streams or punctuated equilibrium and will use the following classes to see how other authors have used them in shedding light on the process of policy-making.
