As depicted in Figure 4, there are two dimensions of comparative analysis. First, the comparison of the three case studies is meant to highlight, and differentiate between, those factors influencing WCI choice and WCI design and, in particular the role that case-specific WCI images play in shaping the political process from agenda-setting to implementation. Second, the comparison between the knowl-edge development in the international research community on WCIs and the images that are thereby generated within this group of the results on the one hand and the case studies (including the specific policy images) on the other hand is meant to illustrate the persistence of policy images in the light of emerging knowledge.
