Policy Drift: Shared Powers and the Making of U.S. Law and Policy

Norma M. Riccucci

Abstract

Policy Drift: Shared Powers and the Making of U.S. Law and Policy is a seminal book that closely examines the role of shared powers on shifts or drifts in three critical areas of domestic public policy: privacy rights, civil rights, and climate policy. Most books focus on the politics of implementation, but here the author shows how existing policy can drift in unanticipated directions due to punctuated social, political, or economic forces.

Keywords: policy drifts, policy frameworks, shared powers, surveillance policy, civil rights policy, climate policy
