Research Design and Questions In the Australian case study, policy processes were analysed using a ‘policy trajectory’ approach (Ball 1994; Vidovich 2007, 2013; Rizvi and Lingard 2010). This approach can be traced back to the early work of Bowe et al. (1992), who argued that policy development could not be neatly split into discrete stages of formulation and implementation. They proposed three ‘messy’ and interrelated contexts of policy influences (where global pressures, national agendas, and local stakeholder views come together); policy text production (the characteristics of texts and where/ how they are produced); and practices/effects (first order effects arising from where/ when policy is enacted, transformed, rejected or ignored).
