  • Decision making process ; Diffusion ; Expertise ; Governance ; Network ; Policy ; Political geography ; Transnationalism
  • The emergence of transnational geographies of governance presents a challenge to geographers. Geographical work on policy transfer has much to offer conceptions of emerging geographies of governance, when linked to the production of governance

  • a discussion of policy consultants.

  • The A. examines here the use of narratives about these causal relationships and explore why narratives with little basis in observation can persist in guiding policy. He examines 3 case studies, one concerning a narrative of climate impacts
  • (catastrophic flooding in Mozambique, in 2000), a second concerning the relationship between household wealth and vulnerability, and the third concerning the procedures and needs of policy-makers themselves. In each case, the A. finds that the narrative
  • that was needed to legitimize and continue the resource flow within an existing policy process continued, despite growing empirical and model-driven evidence to suggest that the narrative may not be correct. He compares these stories with theories from
