Research Interests: "Frame Politics: The Politics of Ideas in Contemporary Immigration Policymaking in Germany, Sweden, and France." How do policy reversals happen, why do they happen, and who makes them happen? Furuya develops a theory of frame politics which looks to the dynamics of ideational clashes to explain key policy changes. Examines the role of ideas in policymaking, in which ideas serve as both prescribing and enabling force for policy actors.
