1. In your opinion, why does the policy sciences not have a theoretical foundation?
2. According to Frank Baumgartner, what is instrumental in keeping a policy stable over time? Provide an example of policy stability and explain why it remained as such.
3. Reflecting on your readings and the Craig Volden interview, what influences the diffusion of a policy? In your opinion, what do you think is the most important mechanism for policy diffusion, explain why. What does this say about our current policy environment in regard to the pandemic or the social equity movements?
Also, I mentioned another interview in my video by Chris Weible. You are not required to watch it, but here it is if you are interested.
