Social simulation and polycentric policy making: ex ante assessment of administrative reform in the region Rotterdam
Administrative reform is often practiced as solution for perceived problems. However, frequently results are disappointing. The authors relate this phenomenon to the multi-centered nature of administrative processes and propose a social simulation method to gain more insight in potential impact of administrative reforms considered by ex ante assessment. Their analysis is supported by a specific example.
