Panel on the Diffusion of Public Policies

How do policies diffuse across political systems—nations, US states, or other kinds of ‘policy producing’ units? Do they systematically learn from the trials of earlier policy adopters? Do they imitate without analysis in a frenzy of contagion? Are the new policies all determined by internal politics, with nothing to do with either learning or contagion?
