The Democratic Foundations of Policy Diffusion

How Health, Family, and Employment Laws Spread Across Countries

Katerina Linos

  • Presents the new and controversial theory that laws spread not through networks of technocrats, but through domestic democracy, in public and politicized ways
  • Analyzes new data from multiple methodological perspectives: public opinion experiments, case studies based on election campaigns and legislative debates, cross-national statistical analysis of policy adoption and implementation across rich democracies
  • Bridges international and domestic law and politics; shows how international law and international norms influence fields previously understood as entirely domestic, including health, family and employment policy
