Policy Metaphors, Policy Failures.
Organized Crime, Anti-Corruption, and Good Governance

My project focuses on three grand metaphors of public policy: organized crime, anti-corruption, and good governance. The purpose of my critical study is to shed light on the way such common metaphors create quasi-objects and become themselves subject to public policy misuse. It also aims at revealing the long-term implications of policy concepts that have undergone uncritical universalization and, at the same time, unlimited application at the end of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st centuries.
