No 14/2, IZNE Social Protection Working Paper from International Centre for Sustainable Development (IZNE), Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences

Abstract: The paper examines the effectiveness of transgovernmental policy networks as a governance structure for policy diffusion. The analysis is based on a survey including 50 social protection policy maker and technical practitioner who are country delegates to transgovernmental policy networks within the policy area of social protection. The paper provides anecdotal empirical evidence that policy networks contribute to policy diffusion by inducing mutual learning processes.
