Abstract [en]

In political science in general and specifically in the field of policy analysis, an eternal question concerns how decisions and policies arise. Just as political science has been influenced by movements such as governance and new public management, the analysis of decision-making has to adapt to new circumstances. Modern societies today are more complex and more polycentric than before and include competing actors that represent different interests. Hence, the need for an inclusive perspective seems obvious. Adding a methodological perspective, it is hard to know when these actions represent expressions from individuals or, alternatively, groups. In other words, when do individual actors’ actions transform into influencing norms, values, and cultures that affect the political system? By reviewing and analyzing earlier research on how decision-making is reached, the overall ambition of this article is to create a framework for analyzing processes of decision-making at local levels. Such a framework, that takes into account both the complexity of modern multi-governance and adds methodological perspectives of macro, micro, and causal mechanisms, can be used in future research to achieve richer pictures of how decision-making is carried out.
