This chapter asks whether there has been a professionalisation of policy analysis in Germany or not. While we have basic knowledge of policy analysis in academia, less is known about its development and characteristics in practice. Especially the occupational areas for applied policy analysts have not been clearly identified yet. Therefore, it is asked what the status quo of policy analysis – in terms of its professionalisation – is and whether the assumption of dualism between academic and applied policy analysis can be confirmed in this respect. Therefore the chapter analyses two different aspects of ‘professionalisation’: After examining how universities prepare future policy analysts, occupational areas and working modes of academic and applied policy analysts will be analysed. The explorative results support the assumption of a German dualism between academic and applied policy analysis also in terms of professionalisation: while it is on the way in academia, it is (yet) faraway in practice.
