Promises and pitfalls

This edited volume examines how and under which conditions foreign policy analysis can be enriched by “domestic realm” public policy approaches, concepts, and theories. Public policy scholars dealing with the analysis of domestic policy fields, such as social and economic policy, interior affairs, or environmental policy, use a broad array of heuristics, concepts, and theories, including, for example, multiple streams, advocacy coalition or punctuated equilibrium approaches. However, the possible contribution of such approaches to the analysis of foreign policy has yet to be fully explored. With this purpose in mind, this edited volume devotes a chapter each on a selection of arguably the most important domestic public policy approaches and examines their transferability and adaptability to foreign policy analysis. Thereby the book points out how bridging the intra-disciplinary divide between the analysis of public policy and foreign policy can enrich foreign policy studies and shows how exactly foreign policy analysis can benefit from broadening its instruments for analysis. The edited volume also discusses under what conditions such a transfer is less promising due to the “sui generis” character of foreign policy.

so doing, the edited volume establishes how bridging the intra-disciplinary divide between studies of public and foreign policy can enrich FPA and will show it can benefit from broadening its instruments for analysis. The chapters also discuss under what conditions such a transfer is less promising due to the “sui generis” character of foreign policy. This volume is organized in two parts. Part I consists of four chapters and looks at actor-centered approaches in PP. They are the multiple streams approach, punctuated equilibrium theory
