Abstract and Keywords
The concept of ‘global public policy’ has emerged as scholars widen the depth of their understanding of globalization. What is particularly important is that globalization is an expanding process that leads scholars to focus more broadly on the world through novel lenses. These processes lead scholars to break away from long-standing studies focusing primarily on states as their starting point. Hence, in a globalizing world, the study of public policy needs to be broadened to study its changing nature and roles. Drawing from the thinking of Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing and of Manuel Castells, this chapter provides new ways to begin thinking about public policy beyond states while reaching out to study in more depth the whole world. From this view of the world, the chapter addresses the question: How might public policy making be changing in response to political restructuring in the face of ongoing contemporary globalizing processes?
