In Policy & Politics, discussion of “Logic of Discipline”

LogicOfDisciplineThe current issue of Policy & Politics provides a special collection of papers on depoliticization, governance and the state edited by Matthew Flinders and Matt Wood.  In the final paper, Colin Hay of Sciences Po discusses The Logic of Discipline in the context of the recent financial crisis.  “Yes, there has been a widely acknowledged crisis,” says Hay. “But, as the contributions in this collection all make clear, the tendency in the wake of the crisis has been to reaffirm and further consolidate a ‘logic of discipline’ over a logic of public accountability and/or democratic choice.”  Free access to Hay’s article: Depoliticisation as process, governance as practice.
