Postmodernism as an Approach to Policy Studies – An Overview

Edmore Ntini

Abstract


This article analyses the possible use of postmodernism in policy studies. Too often there is confusion in the interpretation of the terms pre-modernity, modernity, modernism, modernization and postmodernism. The writer analyses these terms and illustrates their interrelatedness. Of interest is the discussion on the merits and limitations of modernism. Postmodernism is described in detail with a focus on its advantages and disadvantages as an approach to policy studies and its way forward as an approach to policy studies.
