(p.31) Chapter 2 The Transnational Temperance Network
The Political Power of Bad Ideas

Mark Lawrence Schrad (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the cause of temperance as one of the first truly global transnational advocacy networks (TANs), which acted as a multidirectional transmission belt of policy-relevant ideas and information from one country to another, to be filtered and reframed by domestic-level actors. By examining the life cycle of the transnational temperance network in terms of four stages — incipient, ascendant, mature, and declining — the chapter provides a template for addressing the evolution of transnational advocacy networks, while also preparing the stage for analyzing alcohol-control policymaking at the national level, which follows in Chapters 3 through 5.

Keywords:   temperance, transnational advocacy networks, incipient, ascendency, maturity, decline
