Bukowski, Jeanie. (2001) "Policy networks and multi-level interactions: Environmental policy in Spain and Portugal. In: UNSPECIFIED, Madison, Wisconsin. (Unpublished)
In this paper I provide a framework that may help to move us closer to an answer to [the “so what”] question. Using policy networks analysis as a conceptual and descriptive tool, I first “map” the multiple and overlapping levels of authority characteristic of the multi-level governance structure. Within this structure, I then propose to track policy decisions from their formulation at the EU level through their implementation at the state and subnational levels. Determining the actors involved in the policy networks at the various levels, their policy preferences, their interactions, and the diplomacy outcomes across states and policy domains will provide empirical data necessary to build inductively toward an answer to the “so what” question.
