In recent years, there has been an explosion of interest in an interpretive approach to the study of politics and policymaking, broadly defined as the attempt to elicit the perceptions of political actors and understand the meanings they ascribe to political events. Many of the scholars who have pioneered this approach internationally are based in Australia. As such, the newly formed Interpretive Policy Studies Research Group provides a platform for making this community of scholars in Australia even stronger. It will give members the opportunity to share ideas and information, and to network more regularly. More information is available on the IPSRG web page.
