Description

Why Policy Issue Networks Matter tells the story of the Advanced Technology Program (ATP) and the Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP), two highly controversial technology transfer programs created by the federal government in 1988. The book also examines the effects of policy issue networks on policymaking. It is widely argued that open, informal, and decentralized policy issue networks are now dominant in many areas of policymaking, yet little is known about the effects of policy issue networks.
