Aki un extracto di su charla:
Discourse creates the world of policy. It plays a key role within policy formation; political discourse is made visible within particular discursive (spoken and written) practices. Hence, I suggest that mental health policy is the endpoint of a discursive process and that it is, in itself, an institutional process. The shared understanding necessary to formulate policy is crucial to persons who are responsible for policy decisions and recommendations. Since the public perception is that public policy problems are too complicated for ordinary people to deal with, the policy problem is reframed into manageable "bits." It is how these "bits" are framed, named, and made sense of that concern me most in the policymaking process. It is how we can make visible the often invisible processes that occur in the creation of that final report. To do so, I use a discursive approach and a selection of discourse tokens, both talk and text, to examine how evidence and expert is defined in public mental health policymaking at the state and national level in the United States.
