  • Descrição: This study explores the potential contribution of an alternative, institutional approach to policy analysis. Certain properties of the institutional approach identified in this study, including its nonpredictive epistemological orientation, focus on institutions as the unit of observation, reliance on behavioral analysis, and ability to incorporate a wider array of disciplinary perspectives are evaluated with respect to their contribution to policy analysis. The primary analytical technique of institutional economics, development of a pattern model, is analyzed in some detail and compared with traditional mainstream analytics. An illustration of an institutional approach to policy analysis is developed to examine policy considerations raised by the farmland retention issue. A pattern model is constructed to provide the framework for the institutional analysis. Primary components of the model, the policy environment, and the actors within that environment structure and the qualitative and quantitative analysis. Conclusions to the study are: (1) conclusions and policy recommendations are offered for the specific case of the farmland retention issue; and (2) for the more general case of natural-resource policy analysis, and evaluation of the potential analytical contributions of an institutional approach or a blend of approaches is offered.
