Abstract

This case study demonstrates how researchers may use critical frame analysis for policy analysis by closely examining its application to international gender equality policies. Critical frame analysis, a variation of Erving Goffman’s frame analysis tailored specifically for the comparative analysis of social policy, positions the researcher to develop an understanding of how and why policies differ from one another. The method tasks researchers with specifically focusing on how social problems and their solutions are framed as a means for understanding the goals, outcomes, and power dynamics inherent in policies. This case study demonstrates the potential of this under-utilized method as a tool for policy analysis.
