What explains the persistence of socially suboptimal policies over long periods of time? What factors and forces provoke episodes of reform that punctuate long periods of policy inertia? Given the growing need to achieve policy impact with scarce resources, these key questions increasingly preoccupy the international donor and research communities.
 
This seminar presents the Kaleidoscope Model, a practical analytical framework for understanding policy-reform processes. Drawing on insights from political economy, public administration, and policy-process scholarship, the Kaleidoscope Model encompasses a set of tractable, operational hypotheses that can be applied across disparate policy domains and country contexts.
 
The seminar will discuss the model’s robustness based on findings from fieldwork applications in Ghana, Malawi, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zambia with respect to two very different policy domains—namely, agricultural input subsidies and human micronutrient interventions.
