Methodology seminar: Use of policy documents as research data

Tuesday, October 4, 2016 to Wednesday, October 5, 2016

RELATE CoE and The School of Management of the University of Tampere organize a methodologyoriented
two-day seminar 4.-5.10 2016, open for all researches and doctoral students. The overall idea is
to look at the multi-faceted nature of policy processes through the lens of interpretive policy analysis.
The seminar will concentrate on methodological questions and especially the use of policy documents as
a part of research data. The seminar is open for all kinds of research themes, for instance, urban
planning, participation, public management and governance. The seminar also focuses on the logics of
public administration and builds understanding of the circumstances in which the documents are
prepared. Policy documents and public sector practices are approached from within the public sector as
well as from academic viewpoints. With keynote lectures and in workshops we interpret the status of
policy documents in our research, and address how this interpretation affects our analysis and further
interpretations.
