What's the Problem Represented to Be?
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.
The book mounts a challenge to the problem-solving paradigm currently dominating the intellectual and policy landscape, a paradigm manifest in evidence-based policy. Arguing that such a paradigm denies the shaping that goes on in the process of problematisation, it offers a whats the problem represented to be? approach to policy analysis as a counter-discourse. In this view critical thinking involves putting problems into question rather than learning how to solve them.
Bacchis new approach to policy analysis offers exciting insights in a wide array of policy areas, including welfare, drugs/alcohol and gambling, criminal justice, health, education, immigration and population, media and research policy. Invaluable to those involved in policy studies and public administration, it will also appeal to students and academics in sociology, social work, anthropology, cultural studies and human geography.
