> Understanding the drama of democracy: policy work, power and transformation
>  
> In the age of mediatisation, network governance, and multi level governance, all public agents, including government officials and academic experts, must now be credible next to being legally legitimated and effective. Therefore, policy work and its evaluation are not only based on formal positions and legal responsibilities but are also negotiated in policy practices by civil organizations, experts, journalists and the general public.
> The performative dimension of democracy is increasingly important. This challenges actors involved to cross boundaries, to learn, to transform, to deal with constantly alternating power relations, and to be perceived as authentic or trustworthy. It also challenges interpretive research to study how public actors perform in practice and suggests a need to pay attention to action-oriented and language-oriented dimensions of practice. Moreover, it raises questions about the role of interpretive research in the mediation and transformation of different meanings and creating or supporting policy learning.
