Feminist policy studies, Non feminist policy studies, Post adoption research
The goal of this paper is to draw on research in both feminist and non feminist policy studies to propose a roadmap for assessing what happens to explicitly feminist policies after they are formally made in the highly complex, yet crucial “post adoption” phases – implementation, evaluation and outcomes. The paper makes a case for studying systematically feminist policy post adoption, reviews existing work to identify some of the foundations for and gaps in studying feminist policy, maps out the post adoption process, presents a list of factors for feminist policy success and proposes concrete steps to study feminist post adoption.
