Principles and compromise in reform-related negotiation processes

Abstract : Acceptance or rejection of reforms in political or administrative contexts can be viewed as the result of a negotiation process, which is either explicit or tacit. Here we focus on a dimension of such processes which has hitherto been neglected to some extent: the role and perception of guiding principles. Such principles raise issues concerning the nature of rule-following, when the rules are fairly general and call for interpretation (and this is generally the case when the rules have ethical significance). This is not alien to some currents of research about bargaining and computer support for bargaining. The specificities of rule-following in such contexts can help explain some features of reform-related negotiation or compromise-building processes. This is illustrated by the insights from two case studies: (1) reform of the hospital system in France in the 1970s and (2) present-day innovation policy in Norway.
