The theoretical model of “steering” was first developed in German political science, and underwent important modifications over time. Initially focused on the state as agent, or subject of steering, in a first expansion of the paradigm the object of steering and its compliance with or resistance to a policy came to be included. In a second expansion of the theoretical model, non-state actors were included as steering subjects; thus “governance” came to replace “steering.” This shift was accompanied by an empirically based theoretical critique of the earlier steering model’s selective approach.
