The Politics of Smoking

(p.124) 6 Policy Networks and Issue Networks
Policy Networks in British Government

Melvyn D. Read

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents an analysis of the politics of smoking. It suggests that there is strong evidence that policy in this field is made within a producer-dominated policy community. It also examines the relationship between the tobacco industry and government. First, it seeks to determine whether a policy community exists in the field. It then explores the distinction between the closeness of relationships in a network and dominance within that network. Finally, it identifies those factors which have brought about change in the policy network.

Keywords:   smoking, policy community, tobacco industry, network, policy network
