The Institutional Grammar Tool Meets the Narrative Policy Framework: Narrating Institutional Statements in Consultation

On 12 May, we welcome Claire Dunlop (University of Exeter), Jonathan Kamkhaji (Politecnico di Milano), Claudio Radaelli (STG Florence) and Gaia Taffoni (STG Florence) to SKAPE as part of our annual seminar series.

We compare the central analytical categories of two approaches ultimately anchored to categories based on language – the Narrative Policy Framework (NPF) and the Institutional Grammar Tool (IGT). We first theorize the coordinates of the conversation between NPF and IGT, working on the affinities and differences in the key categories. Then we provide a demonstration of how the conversation may develop by analyzing original data on the design of consultation procedures in the European Union, Finland, Ireland and Malta. Our exercise reveals how to navigate from NPF to IGT and how the two lenses can be combined to improve on concepts and gain in explanatory leverage.

The seminar will take place online via Zoom (for link details, please email the Co-Directors – if you are already a member/associate member of SKAPE, then you will receive a Zoom link two days before the start of the event).
