Description


This book focuses on airport expansion and aviation as a wicked policy problem to illuminate wider theoretical debates and conceptualisations about policy analysis and social and political theory. It examines the authoritative role of expert commissions in seeking to settle ongoing controversies and discusses the concept of depoliticisation in debates about current and future policy analysis. The authors construct and employ an innovative form of poststructuralist policy analysis, which is used to delineate the rival rhetorical and discursive strategies articulated by the coalitions seeking to shape public policy.
