(p.332) Postscript An Agenda for Future Research
The National Origins of Policy Ideas

John L. Campbell

Ove K. Pedersen

Princeton University Press

This postscript offers some suggestions for a research agenda for the future, including questions and propositions for scholars to consider regarding globalization and neoliberal diffusion, comparative political economy, and convergence theory. It asks whether the same conclusions can be obtained if different countries and different policy areas were examined. This curiosity about other countries might translate into efforts to change knowledge regimes, such as by doing more cross-national policy analysis. The chapter also asks whether knowledge regimes are a source of legitimation or a source of inspiration. Ultimately, more effort is required to determine whether the overall structure and practices of a knowledge regime influences the type of ideas it tends to produce.

Keywords:   research agenda, globalization, neoliberal diffusion, comparative political economy, convergence theory, cross-national policy analysis, knowledge regimes, policy ideas
