About this book

'This volume is a major achievement. It advances our knowledge of stability and change in water policy around the world through sixteen national case studies from around the world. Its focus on "transitions" - instances of really major shifts in policy - is particularly welcome at a time when challenges such as climate change force water policy makers to reconsider the very foundations of their regulatory frameworks and infrastructural policies. The volume goes beyond water policy, however. It makes a major contribution to the study of policy dynamics in general by offering an empirically-grounded comparative analysis of policy entrepreneurs as change agents in policy networks. There has been much loose talk about policy entrepreneurs in the fields of public administration and public policy, but a dearth of empirical work underpinning the various claims made. This volume goes a long way towards filling that gap. Highly recommended - for water experts and policy scientists alike.'
