Regional Comparisons and Policy Analysis contains chapters that are regional in focus and conduct comparisons in specific policy sectors.

Conducting regional comparisons often allows studies to hold constant many variables, ranging from language to colonial legacy, and more effectively isolate dependent variables. The authors conduct cross-country comparisons in specific policy sectors, including fiscal policy, environment policy, family policy, and healthcare policy. Regional organizations like the OECD, or European Union are also considered as catalysts for regional policy approaches and harmonization, and play a major role in this volume. The chapters address a broad number of regions, including Europe, Southeast Asia, Latin America and North America, and can help to identify the variation that exists with regions, as well as between regions.

Regional Comparisons and Policy Analysis will be of great interest to scholars of public policy and social science more generally. The chapters were originally published as articles in the Journal of Comparative Policy Analysis and the volume is part of a four-volume series, the Classics of Comparative Policy Analysis, including Theories and Methods, Institutions and Governance, Regional Comparisons, and Policy Sectors.
