Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportKonferencebidrag i proceedingsForskningpeer review


The communicative turn in planning, multi-layered governance and governmentality are analytical concepts from various schools of thoughts to comprehend the emergence of new types of public-private politics when it comes to complex, wicked issues such as sustainability or the 3rd wave of public health: health promotion. The paper explores a research approach to compare two different policy communication tracks in order to conceive various impacts on deliberation. The tracks are constructed along the the narratives individual-collective & consensus-conflictual in the discursive framing of political communication. We build an ANT inspired methodology and look into two simultaneously evolving political agendas during the last two decades - sustainability and health promotion - that have framed communication efforts, campaigns and politics in general. How is public participation and deliberation understood in the two policy tracks along historical stages? When is governmentality politics by deliberation for individual or collective action a winner or a looser?
