The Politics of Scale in Policy

The book’s final chapter discusses how the lens of scalecraft has helped to generate new readings of policy which take into account the scalar politics of policymaking. The discussion reflects on how scale played out in each of the empirical chapters, and how analysis has shed light on the under-examined relationship between policy, scale, and hegemony. Key features of the practice of scalecraft are also developed, including a description of three scalecraft techniques, and by doing so the book offers scholars of policy a clear framework for integrating a critical approach to scale in their analyses. The chapter also discusses how scalecraft contributes to the wider literatures of policy studies, political geography, and education governance. The book concludes by outlining the potential which lies in future work engaging with conceptualisations of spatial politics that go beyond scale.
