Abstract

This paper attempts to identify if Network Policy Analysis provides an adequate understanding of state-group inter-mediation at local level. In order to do that the paper refers to recent developments of Policy Network Analysis in UK local government towards a network model of policy making. Beginning with the recent enlargements in Policy Network Analysis it argues that Marsh and Rhodes’s (1992) and Marsh and Smith’s (1996, 1998) Dialectical Approach provide the most convincing response to the topic. Based on this it demonstrates the implications of these theories into British local politics with respect to a developing network model. It tests finally the theoretical considerations empirically using the case of Birmingham City Council regarding housing policy.
