Prognostic Framing

Prognostic Framing concerns the best solution for the problems that have been identified through diagnostic framing.105 Even if a particular social condition is perceived as genuinely problematic, the solution that is adopted might not be what social movements are proposing. It is therefore necessary not just to identify problems, but to argue for specific solutions.
