Agenda-Setting in the European Union by Sebastiaan Princen


Agenda-Setting in the European Union by Sebastiaan Princen

Why does the EU deal with some issues but not others? This is the central question of this book dedicated to agenda-setting processes in the EU. Through a comparison of EU and US policy agendas and the analysis of four case studies in environmental and health policy, this book offers a new understanding of how policy issues come onto the EU agenda.


Princen, using qualitative and quantitative approaches and offering a well-written and sound analysis, uses agenda setting to understand the dynamic conditions by which issues rise on the agenda of the EU over time. - CHOICE
