Carol Bacchi's research extends across several fields, from a historical analysis of the Canadian suffrage movement hto studies of positive discrimination in a number of countries in the western world. However, it is primarily through her methodological approach in policy studies, "What's the Problem Represented to Be? (WPR) Approach", that she left a permanent impression in international policy research, not least in the Nordic countries. She has particularly noted the effects of the policy capability from a gender perspective by bringing together WPR with feminist political theory. Thus, she has challenged and developed a research field within political science, while at the same time creating a methodological approach that is available to researchers at different levels, including students.
Carol Bacchi will be awarded the title Honorary doctor of philosophy at the Annual Celebration Ceremony on 21 October at 17:00 in Aula Nordica.
