What Next for the State? General Trends and Challenges for Democratic Policy-Making
Policy-makers typically find themselves under huge pressure to address pressing societal challenges, be they environmental, demographic, economic, social, or cultural in nature. In response to these societal demands and problem-solving requirements, all modern democracies have piled up an enormous number of laws, policies, and public programs over the years that deeply affect all aspects of life and even death for their citizens. At the same time, however, the steadily increasing stock of rules and policies also creates difficult challenges for the state. These challenges are likely to emerge in at least three different areas: policy learning, policy discourse and communication, as well as policy implementation.
