Frameworks for Policy Analysis argues that, in order to bring relevance back to policy analysis, we need to approach policy situations as complex phenomena and employ multiple ways of looking at things in order to understand the essential elements of each policy case. The book is an exploration of distinct, sometimes radically different, models for analysis, but it is also a reference for these multiple methodologies that all come under the term "analysis." Along with classic and recent models, the book introduces some new concepts that serve to deepen our analysis and aspire to what Geertz calls "thick description." This text, written for advanced courses in policy analysis, is an answer to the critical gap between the complexity and dimensionality of policy situations and the abstract and formal character of policy analysis, in general. The book begins by introducing the reader to dominant models of analysis, pointing out their limitations and the potential for transcending these limits. It also introduces new analytical approaches that help to merge text and context, increasing the dimensionality and authenticity of the analysis.

Der Ruf nach einer „Politik aus einem Guss“ ist nicht neu; jüngst wird er aber im Zusammenhang mit Nachhaltigkeit besonders laut. So erfordere eine effektive Bearbeitung komplexer Nachhaltigkeitsprobleme die Integration sektoraler Policies zu einer umfassend-kohärenten Nachhaltigkeitspolitik. Aber was genau ist unter Policy-Integration im Kontext von Nachhaltigkeit zu verstehen? Basil Bornemann nimmt eine systematische Klärung des Verhältnisses von Policy-Integration und Nachhaltigkeit in konzeptioneller und empirischer Hinsicht vor. Ausgehend von einer Kritik am bestehenden Diskurs wird Policy-Integration als generische analytische Perspektive entwickelt. Sie bildet zusammen mit einer Interpretation von Nachhaltigkeit als Integrationsidee die Grundlage für die Formulierung eines normativen Konzepts integrativer Nachhaltigkeitspolitik. In einer detaillierten empirischen Fallstudie wird die strategische Nachhaltigkeitspolitik der deutschen Bundesregierung daraufhin analysiert, ob und inwieweit diese den Anforderungen einer integrativen Politik der Nachhaltigkeit genügt.

For as long has humans have lived in communities, storytelling has bound people to each other and to their environments. In recent times, scholars have noted how social networks arise around issues of resource and ecological management. In this book, Raul Lejano, Mrill Ingram, and Helen Ingram argue that stories, or narratives, play a key role in these networks -- that environmental communities "narrate themselves into existence." The authors propose the notion of the narrative-network, and introduce innovative tools to analyze the plots, characters, and events that inform environmental action. Their analysis sheds light on how environmental networks can emerge in unlikely contexts and sustain themselves against great odds. The authors present three case studies that demonstrate the power of narrative and narratology in the analysis of environmental networks: a conservation network in the Sonoran Desert, which achieved some success despite U.S.-Mexico border issues; a narrative that bridged differences between community and scientists in the Turtle Islands; and networks of researchers and farmers who collaborated to develop and sustain alternative agriculture practice in the face of government inaction. These cases demonstrate that by paying attention to language and storytelling, we can improve our understanding of environmental behavior and even change it in positive ways.
