A policy paradigm or rationale usually is extracted from theoretical perspectives. It is a more or less formalised model implicitly or explicitly drawing upon academic theories or concepts that inform policy design, implementation and evaluation. It contains assumptions about the nature of the system within which an intervention is to be made. Moreover, it implicitly or explicitly articulates, problematises and justifies the need for intervention and lays out the logic through which the policy intervention is expected to lead to the intended outcomes (LARANJA et al. 2008, p. 823).
