Abstract

The paper reflects on the methodological challenges involved in research on the movement and mutation of fast-moving policies, through globalizing networks and across translocal settings. Inspired by ‘follow the thing’ methods and by the global ethnography program, it outlines a distended case-study approach to the study of policy mobilities. Keywords: policy mobilities, extended case method, globalization
