Durable policy approaches: Framework development and brief literature review
Nixon, Chris | June 2016
Developing durable policy approaches consistently as possible is the holy grail of policy advising. Having a stock of policy interventions that provide consistent guidance and governance to New Zealanders as they conduct their commercial and social affairs will ensure a stable platform for societal interactions and can defuse tension between government citizens and business. A consistent and stable platform provides opportunities for further social and economic innovation. By durability we mean the creation of fit-for-purpose interventions that deliver an efficient and effective response to changing societal views, technology, global trends or even one-off events. This suggests robustness to foreseeable shocks and the reasonable elapse of time. To be successful durability depends on resolving the tensions around short and long term policy solutions. It could be a short term fix (e.g. in response to a single temporary event) or one of a series of interventions over time (e.g. government responses to industries where technology is moving quickly). Policy settings or approaches are the interventions made and are the outcomes of the interactions between politicians, policymakers, and implementation. These can range from regulations, policy stances, inquiries, royal commissions, and attitudes by politicians and policy makers.
