ISTPP Research Published in Policy Studies Journal

May 31, 2010

ISTPP researchers Xinsheng Liu, Eric Lindquist, and Arnold Vedlitz have published “Understanding Local Policy Making: Policy Elites’ Perceptions of Local Agenda Setting and Policy Alternative Selection” in Policy Studies Journal (volume 38, no. 1, February 2010).  PSJ is a leading public policy research journal and the principal outlet for the Public Policy Section of the American Political Science Association and for the Policy Studies Organization (PSO). Also co-author on this article is Kenneth Vincent, a Bush School graduate and ISTPP research associate, now with the Energy Information Administration in the U. S. Department of Energy.

The article is based on research that ISTPP conducted for the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency. The project, Use of Science in Gulf of Mexico Decision Making Involving Climate Change, was a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional research project assessing how stakeholder groups in Louisiana, Florida and Texas use scientific information about global climate change in their decision-making processes.

The research team was led by principal investigator and ISTPP director, Dr. Arnold Vedlitz, and included researchers from four universities—Texas A&M University’s Institute for Science, Technology and Public Policy in the George Bush School of Government and Public Service, the University of New Orleans’ Center for Hazards Assessment, Response and Technology, the University of Louisiana at Lafayette’s Center for Socioeconomic Research, and Florida A&M University’s Environmental Sciences Institute.
