Siinviidatud vabalevis olev tekst võiks huvi pakkuda kõikidele “poliitilistele loomadele”, kuid eriti poliitikutele-valitsejatele, tudengitele võrdlevanalüüsiks ideede ammutamisel, õppejõududele seminaritekstiks. Kasulik tekst ka neile, kel lihtsalt huvi ümbritseva vastu. Ja veel, teksi viidatavusnumbreid lähitulevikus võiks huviga jälgida.


“The Covid-19 pandemic, which began in 2020, represents the perfect storm for national political systems (Lynggaard et al., 2022; Zahariadis et al., 2022). The crisis that emerged in the wake of the pandemic has fundamentally challenged the political institutions, political processes as well as many national policies.” (Christensen et al., 2022, p. 3)

“This article asks how variation in the use of governance arrangements and regulatory instruments between the Nordic countries can be explained with the help of a within-country variation.” (Christensen et al., 2022, p. 3)

Väheuuritud vaatenurk:

“In sum, no work on Covid-19 policy response has aspired to compare how within-country differences may affect variations in national responses to the pandemic taking account of changes in modes of governance, levels of politicization, and the use of expertise.” (Christensen et al., 2022, p. 4)

Tähendusruum selgeks:

“Although regulation is a multidimensional concept, we define regulatory instruments as tools enacted by policymakers for “the sustained and focused attempt to alter the behavior of others according to defined standards and purposes with the intention of producing a broadly identified outcome or outcomes, which may involve mechanisms of standard setting, information-gathering and behavior modification” (Black, 2002; Koop & Lodge, 2017).” (Christensen et al., 2022, p. 5)

“Looking at within-country variation first, all the Nordic countries, except Norway and Sweden, changed the modus operandi during the pandemic from normal policymaking. In Iceland, the role of expertise increased, whereas in Denmark, it decreased. The level of politicization increased in Denmark and Finland. Yet, the level of variation is higher between the Nordic countries during the pandemic. Our comparison reveals several notable patterns.” (Christensen et al., 2022, p. 17)
