Abstract:

"Building on hundreds of thousands of systematically collected and content-coded local policy agenda observations, this book examines – theoretically and empirically – the policy agenda effects of four central aspects of any political system: the institutions that structure politics; the problems confronting the political system; the occurrence of regular elections; and the actors navigating the political system."

The publisher writes:

  • "Advances our explanatory models of policy agendas by studying them at the local level of politics
  • Provides new, important insights about the functioning of local politics that is gained by studying local policy agendas
  • Presents the first large-N study of how key actors in government influence local policy agendas"
