argue for a theorybased way of making sense of public policies and their impact
on health. We assert that health promotion would benefit from bringing theories
on the policy process into its growing corpus, and that theorybased thinking is
practical. As Kurt Lewin famously said, and as many likeminded researchers
have since reiterated, there is nothing as practical as a good theory (Lewin, 1945
). At first, this seems like quite a paradox, since the essence of a theory is its

As Kickert et al (1997) argue, networks are, and will remain, a key part of the
policy process. Or, as Rhodes (2006, p 441) boldly puts it: 'there is no longer a
debate about the future of policy networks The subject is here to stay - a standard
topic in any public policy-making textbook'. So, while there are clearly some
problems with the PNA as it stands, it seems to us that the attempt to further refine
and develop a theory of the policy process that has networks at its core is of
crucial ...

Belief systems Policy choices contain elements of empirical belief, practical
judgement, and ethical conviction (Lindblom, 1980: 117). These beliefs, or policy
theories as they also are called, can be reconstructed in order to enhance the
understanding of the positions of the actors taking part in the policy-making
process. A policy theory is “the total of causal and other assumptions underlying
a policy” (Hoogerwerf, 1990: 285). These assumptions concern relations
between objectives ...

To come to terms with this complexity, scholars have developed a number of
theories and models of policy making. Each highlights certain aspects of the
process, diminishes others, and, therefore, contains both strengths and
weaknesses. For practitioners of public policy, models and theories suggest
possible means of influencing policy outputs and outcomes. There is no grand
theory of the policy process that will completely explain or accurately predict
governmental outcomes, but ...
