Fast Policy is the 1st systematic therapy of this phenomenon, person who compares tactics of coverage improvement throughout quickly relocating fields that emerged within the international South and feature fast been followed worldwide⎯conditional money transfers (a social coverage application that stipulations funds on behavioral compliance) and participatory budgeting (a kind of citizen-centric city governance). Jamie Peck and Nik Theodore seriously examine the turning out to be transnational connectivity among policymaking arenas and modes of coverage improvement, assessing the results of those advancements for modern policymaking. Emphasizing that coverage versions don't easily commute intact from websites of invention to websites of emulation, they problematize quick coverage as a phenomenon that's genuine and consequential but vulnerable to misrepresentation.

Based on fieldwork carried out throughout six continents and in fifteen nations, Fast Policy is a necessary source in supplying a longer theoretical dialogue of coverage mobility and in providing a strategy for ethnographic learn on worldwide social policy.
