Political Modernisation

  • Chapter

Part of the Environment & Policy book series (ENPO,volume 24)

Abstract

In this and in the next chapter we introduce the concepts of political modernisation and policy arrangements, in order to study the plurality and dynamics of processes of institutionalisation in environmental politics. Institutionalisation not only relates to how day-to-day policy making is structured by policy arrangements which result in policy, but also to how the plurality of policy arrangements develops within a certain political context and in a specific period of time. The kind of arrangements and the plurality of these arrangements, we will argue, result from long-term processes of transformation within the political domain, which we will describe as political modernisation.
