Supply-Driven Policy Transfer from International Organizations to Single States: The Case of Policy Transfer of Marine Spatial Planning to Colombia
This study analyzes supply-driven transfer of policy instruments from international organizations (IOs) to single states. It draws on the theories of policy transfer and diffusion to make causal assumptions about the Why and How behind the transfer process of policy instruments from international to state level. The added value of the study lies in the emphasis of the proactive role of the IO in promoting and co-producing the instrument and on the relevance of the domestic institutional context. The study applies case-study approach, it takes the IOC-UNESCO and its intensive promotion of Marine Spatial Planning as a policy instrument. The country of study is Colombia.
