My research interests are in comparative public policy, social policy, and theories of the policy process such as the multiple-streams framework. I have investigated family policy change in different European countries, focusing on the role of policy ideas, policy learning and policy transfers. My on-going research programme is on policy analysis and research utilisation in the policy process.
