Project Details

Policy Trajectories, Policy Types, and a Theoretical Model of Policy Processes

The project, an expansion of an ongoing project titled 'Historical development of educational policies in Hong Kong' (PI: Lo, Wai Yin, Co-PI: Choi, Tae-Hee, Co-I: Hui, Hon Wing Joe), will investigate the historical development of key educational policies in Hong Kong, Australia and Mainland China. Comparative understanding of the history of select policies will help understand the evolution of policies in interaction with the contexts and actors within. It will be informed by policy enactment theory (Ball, Maguire & Braun, 2012), and draw on frameworks which capture the complexities of policy processes (e.g., Choi, 2018; 2019), and analyse historical policy documents, research reports, public addresses and the media records, in addition to the academic literature. * References 1.
