Dynamics of Post-crisis Reform in Public Policy:The Case of Education Policy in Turkey

This chapter aims to investigate how crises translate into major changes in public policy, in the case of education policy in Turkey. It is indicated that the post-crisis interventions of governments tend to redistribute the fiscal burden on public purse by employing a three-level preference set: economic policy priorities vs social policy priorities; among the sectors belonging to the same policy family; and among different levels/institutions of the same policy field. The chapter, thus, attempts to develop a categorisation of post-crisis reform strategies departing from the findings of the empirical analysis.
