Stabilising the Policy Domain, 1973–76

  • Anne Corbett


From 1973 to 1976 education was explicitly recognised as a policy domain in which the Community action had some role, both as a sector in which there was a developing law and — not coterminous and rather ambiguous — a developing common education policy based not on binding law, but on public international law or Community ‘soft law’.1 But on the basis of this account they can more accurately be seen as the years in which for the first time a resource-based policy could be designed. This chapter shows how and why it was possible to develop policy-making in a form which broke new ground in Community governance.
