Abstract and Keywords
The rise of global initiatives in many policy sectors is an emerging phenomenon that deserves the attention of scholars interested in international relations, regional integration, and policy sciences, as well as practitioners seeking comparative examples beyond their national and regional borders. This chapter demonstrates the value-added of the design orientation in studying this phenomenon and the implications for the contemporary delivery of public services and goods. It begins by describing three waves of policy design studies and their insights for unpacking the relationship between instrument design and intended outcomes. The overview reveals a notable feature of the extant policy design approach: its empirical preoccupation with domestic-level developments, which inform but confine theory development. This chapter introduces the analytical steps required to operationalize policy design insights in examining global public policy and transnational administration. In so doing, it calls for a new metaphor for policy design that would incorporate the beyond-the-state dimension.

During 2008–09, she researched European governance mechanisms in education, higher education and research at the Université Libre de Bruxelles from a comparative perspective, and in a Franco-Norwegian project together with Åse Gornizka and Meng-Hsuan Chou. She is the co-editor of the best-selling Dictionnaire des politiques publiques (2004, 2006, 2010, translated into Spanish, Romanian, Russian, and Chinese), and has authored articles and chapters on the Bologna Process and EU policies in different refereed journals and edited books. Together with Meng-Hsuan, she is now working on a research project on ‘Higher Education Regionalism’ (2014–18), comparing higher education regional initiatives in Europe, Asia, and Africa, as well as researching Science Diplomacy interfaces and actors within the H2020 Consortium S4D4C led by the Center for Social Innovation in Vienna, and exploring the recomposition of Higher education cooperation in the context of globalization in her on-going habilitation research. Pauline Ravinet is also Vice-President for European Affairs of the University of Lille, member of the editorial committee of Gouvernement et Action Publique and Policy Design and Practice, nominated member of the Council of the Association française de science politique and the International Public Policy Association, and member of the expert Board of the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (Direction Europe de l’Ouest).
