Citizens, consumers and stakeholders in European health policy

Meri Koivusalo, Jonathan Tritter

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In this chapter we track emerging issues in public participation and involvement in European policymaking. We focus on the politics, legitimacy and accountability of different actors as well as exploring how European participation processes relate to globalization in general and global and regional governance in particular. Health policies tend to be understood as national or even local, yet they are often shaped and defined by regulatory decisions and policies that are determined globally and regionally.
