Policy Networks in British Government

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the development of youth employment policy between 1970 and 1990. There is some evidence that a stable policy community has existed in this area. A single agency, the Manpower Services Commission (MSC) has focused on policy making and has played a role in the evolution and implementation of policies to reduced youth unemployment. This chapter argues that a stable policy community has not existed in this area; rather, there has been a changing policy network. The chapter describes five phases in the development of youth employment policy and identifies the changes which have occurred in the policy network over time.

Keywords:   youth employment policy, policy community, Manpower Services Commission, MSC, youth unemployment, policy network
