Advocacy Coalition Framework


The Advocacy Coalition Framework (ACF) was initially designed in the late 1980s by Paul Sabatier and Hank Jenkins-Smith to help explain coalition structure and behavior, the role of scientific and technical information in policy, policy-oriented learning, and belief and policy change in contentious policy subsystems.  It has since been applied worldwide with nearly 100 applications.  This website provides a clearinghouse for ACF research and highlights other policy process research at the University of Colorado Denver, School of Public Affairs.   We encourage comments, suggestions, and corrections from site visitors.  The website is separated into several subject areas (provided as links from this page) that are intended to highlight specific aspects of the ACF and policy research overall.
