Access Points

Oxford University Press

This chapter concludes the book by summarizing the argument and evidence and discussing avenues for additional research. This book is not intended to be the last word on Access Point Theory, but rather to inspire a broader research agenda investigating the role of domestic institutions on policy outcomes. As such, the conclusion discusses how Access Point Theory can be extended to policy outcomes beyond just complexity and bias, such as level of delegation; to additional policy areas, such as budgetary policy and consumer regulations; and to non-democracies. In addition, the conclusion discusses how Access Point Theory and Veto Player Theory can be combined to provide a more detailed explanation of when policy change is possible and what that policy change will look like.

Keywords:   access point theory, veto player theory, bias, complexity, delegation
