This chapter presents a variety of types of conflicts that can emerge in relation to policy design. The types of conflict relate to different aspects of the context of policy design. In particular, the discussion is organized around four types of conflict: policy design and stakeholder conflict, conflict in the behavioral assumptions underlying policy design, intra- and inter-policy design conflict and conflict among policy design and principles of democratic governance. The discussion of each of these types of policy design-related conflict is informed by a review of theoretical and empirical scholarship on policy design.
