Policy Studies Journal Publishes Special Issue on Punctuated Equilibrium Theory

Wed, February 22, 2012

"Policy Studies Journal" has published a special issue devoted to Punctuated Equilibrium Theory, the theory of policy change developed by Bryan Jones and Frank Baumgartner.

Included in the issue is an article by Department of Government graduate student Michelle Wolfe, "Putting on the Brakes or Pressing on the Gas? Media Attention and the Speed of Policymaking," which draws attention to the media's role in not only accelerating large-scale policy change, but the ways in which the media slow down policy change and reinforce system stability.
