Abstract

This paper puts forward a proposal of theoretical methodology, which combines various discourse analysis strategies to explain the process of public policy from the perspective of discourse. Based on this approach, the formulation of urban green space policy implemented in Mexico City from 2006 to 2012 was reviewed. The cases analyzed show how interdisciplinary and cross scale methods can strengthen the understanding of the complexity of urban and environmental discourse, and prove the mechanism theory on which the concept, category and description of public action legitimacy are based.
