What People are Saying About This
“This book should be read as a benchmark theory building application of the multiple streams approach (MSA) that--through careful development and assessment of hypotheses--demonstrates precisely how MSA can be mapped onto a European context. No doubt policy scholars, advocates, and analysts will find its contents useful for years to come.” (Michael D. Jones, Oregon State University, USA)
“This book offers a theoretical advancement of the multiple streams approach, which is empirically illustrated by the case of European energy policy. Well-structured and thoughtfully designed and implemented, it will appeal to both emerging and advanced scholars in the fields of comparative public policy, energy politics, and European integration.” (Jale Tosun, Heidelberg University, Germany)
“An important contribution to public policy and a lucid piece of scholarly work. Tracing causal mechanisms of timing and duration in agenda setting and policy change, the book breaks new ground by adapting and systematically applying the multiple streams approach to the European Union’s natural gas sector.” (Nikolaos Zahariadis, Mertie Buckman Professor, Rhodes College, Memphis, USA)
