Identifies the problems associated with the use of policy network analysis and argues that regarding policy networks as institutions and applying institutional theory might be the answer. Uses a case study of a Danish policy network, which deals with the annual budget negotiations between local and central government, to show the value of this approach in explaining why policy networks come into existence, why they change, why they are so persistent and how they affect policy outcomes.
