Chapter 22: Steering
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.
