Negotiated Agreements as a vehicle for Policy Learning
2010 (English)In: INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF GLOBAL WARMING, ISSN 1758-2083, Vol. 2, no 2, 97-117 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The paper evaluates to which extent that different designs of Voluntary Agreements (VAs) can work as catalysts for Policy Learning (PL) and thus contribute to improved policy design and management processes. Through a literature study, it is found that VAs in the form of Negotiated Agreements (NAs) are more successful in promoting PL than other types of VAs that have less focus on the participatory aspect of the policy processes. The paper contributes to the existing VA policy literature through highlighting the predominately overseen learning values of implementing NA as well as providing policy recommendations on VA learning processes.
