    The paper develops an analytical framework in order to analyse how policy networks and the broader organizational context in which they are embedded influence reform outcomes. The framework is applied in a study of the European Community's agricultural policy reform in 1992. Firstly, it is shown that the EC agricultural policy network led agricultural policy makers in the direction of moderate rather than fundamental reform. Secondly, the paper shows how the broader organisational structure of the European Community made radical reform an almost hopeless objective to pursue because the whole decision making structure allowed the existence of many veto opportunities which could be used to block radical changes.
