An ideational turn occurred in political economy scholarship in the 1990s. During the last decade systematic research attention has been paid to the production and channelling of ideas into political-economic decision-making. One of the key theories in comparative political economy has been that of knowledge regimes, which focuses on the institutional and organizational devices that produce ideas and expertise for national political-economic decision-making. This article presents and problematizes the research on knowledge regimes. The article problematizes the background assumption that the knowledge producers of one regime form one homogeneous organization field and discusses the consequences of giving up this assumption for further research. The article uses the nested case study of Finland to demonstrate the possibilities opened by the removal of the background assumption. The analysis suggests that in Finland there is no homogeneous national knowledge regime but sectorally variegated knowledge regimes.
