British Columbia’s Fast Ferries and Sydney’s Airport Link: Partisan Barriers to Learning from Policy Failure

Joshua Newman, Malcolm Bird

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Policy learning, where experiences from other jurisdictions and
time periods inform decision- making, has been suggested as a way
to improve policy outcomes – or at the very least, to improve a
government’s ability to predict the outcomes of its own policy decisions
(Mossberger and Wolman, 2003, 430). Policy failures might therefore
seem to have an especially prominent place in the learning process, as
examples of instruments and ideas to avoid.
