Reflecting on a Reflective Tool for Policy Analysis Twenty Years after Its Application

Antonio G. Moran



A reflective tool for policy analysis used in a study of Philippine legislative advisers in 1989 is reviewed prospectively in view of developments in e-social science or electronic applications in evidence-based policy analysis. Te review is composed of three parts: (I) a focus on the tool itself, the policy grid, which was based on a psychological method called the repertory grid; (II) current extension, integration, and continuing development of similar tools in web based platforms; and (III) challenges of interfacing tools described with policy
communication concepts synthesized by the author.
