Policy Networks Approach and the Analysis on European Foreign Policy Making

    Onderzoeksoutput: Articlepeer review


    The EU foreign policymaking under its multilevel governance system has its own characteristics and limitations in that it needs the Flexibility and resource application capacity of network organisations to overcome the complexity and hierarchy of the EU's formal decision making process and to improve the interestmediation and problem solving ability of the EU's foreign policy. The policy networks theory possesses obvious theoretical advantages in analysing and understanding issues like the interest intermediation, network structure, cooperation promotion and public-private coordination. By linking the policy networks theory with the EU's foreign policy-making, this paper intends to examine how the informal actor clusters influence the process of European foreign policymaking.
