    Despite the large volume of policies and other formal decision instruments in government and international organizations, policy repositories with rich metadata across government and public administration jurisdictions are virtually nonexistent. The lack of such infrastructure and technical resources makes learning within government, across political and economic regions (such as the EU) and cross-border learning challenging. The use of open standards such as the European Union Interoperability Solutions for Public Administrations (ISA) Core vocabularies for describing government policies could enable the development of robust intra and inter-government policy indexing and search infrastructure. This poster describes a policy vocabulary developed through the systematic and detailed analysis of policy documents spanning several sectors. We present the conceptual model for the vocabulary and describe its major classes.
