How do Political Elites influence Policy Making and what can civil society actors do?

The aim of the event is sharing research findings of colleagues from several parts of the world about how states currently build public policies, the influence that political elites have on the construction of those policies and some of the conditions that enable civil society organizations to participate in policy-making.
Overall, panelists and participants will debate about the advantages and limitations of examining the state as a heterogeneous and fragmented construction, as well as the best methodological techniques to examine state agencies “from the inside”.
Panelists will have 30 minutes to present. Each panel will allow 30 minutes for Q&A and discussion.
