GOMEZ CARDENAS, Carlos Wladimir. The International Mobilization of Ideas. Approaches, Concepts and Actors in the Study of Transfer and Adaptation of Public Policies. Estud. Polit. [online]. 2019, n.56, pp.41-65. ISSN 0121-5167.

This review article discusses the approaches, concepts, and actors in public policy transfers. The discussion, however, focuses on the role played by experts in the international mobilization of ideas, who, despite of their central role in transferring policies, have been little studied in our context. Due to the importance of this matter, the article presents the main conceptual contributions and analysis of perspectives about the political phenomenon of international mobilization of ideas understood as processes of public policy transfer. The literature review is relevant for the development of a new field of research on public policy analysis that includes public policy transfers as a theoretical perspective.

Keywords : Public Policies; Policy Transfer; Diffusion; Learning; Mobility; Latin America.
