Book Description
Our lives increasingly take place in ever more complex and interconnected networks that blur the boundaries we have traditionally used to define our social and political spaces. Accordingly, the policy problems that governments are called upon to deal with have become less clear-cut and far messier. This is particularly the case with climate change, environmental policy, transport, health and ageing-all areas in which the tried-and-tested linear policy solutions are increasingly inadequate or failing. What makes messy policy problems particularly uncomfortable is that science and scientific knowledge have themselves become sources of uncertainty and ambiguity. Indeed, what is to count as a ""rational solution"" is itself now subject of considerable debate and controversy. For policy makers this raises a number of tough questions: Given scientific uncertainty, how are policy-makers to tackle messy issues? What should policy-makers do about the intractable and persistent policy conflicts that seem to accompany messy issues? How can policy-makers structure policy processes in order to better understand, deal with and learn from messy policy issues? This challenging book seeks to answer these questions by focusing on the intractable conflict that characterizes policy debate about messy issues. In the first part of the book, the author develops a framework for analyzing intractable policy conflict about messy policy issues. In the second section, he applies the conceptual framework to four very different policy issues: the environment-focusing on climate change-as well as transport, ageing and health. Using evidence from Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific, the chapters compare how policy actors construct contending narratives or stories in order to make sense of, and deal with, messy challenges. In the final section, the author discusses the implications of the analysis for collective learning and adaptation processes. The aim is to contribute to a more refined understanding of policy-making in the face of uncertainty, and most importantly to provide practical methods for critical reflection on policy and to point to sustainable adaptation pathways and learning mechanisms for policy formulation. Steven Ney has contributed to Resolving Messy Policy Problems: Handling Conflict in Environmental, Transport, Health and Ageing Policy as an author. Steven Ney is Assistant Professor of Political Science at the School of Social Sciences, Singapore Management University. Trained as a policy analyst, Steven Ney has worked on a wide range of policy issues in a number of research institutes across Europe. He is currently exploring institutional change in the field of health care policy.
