Abstract

The chapter aims to demonstrate that constructionist social theory incorporates more than merely discourse analysis. It demonstrates the application of three main approaches: institutionalism, grid-group analysis and actor-network theory. The chapter illustrates how qualitative urban policy analysis can benefit from a range of theoretical insights.
