This chapter explores the process involving policy programming from the perspective of both the constituent elements of a policy programme and that of the actor arrangements involved. It discusses how the political-administrative arrangement (PAA) of a policy represents the structured group of public and para-state actors who are responsible for its implementation. It notes that the majority of decisions concerning the designation of the competent authorities and services are already taken at the level of the PAA. It explains that the programming of a public policy generally unfolds on the basis of a highly formalized procedure.

Keywords:   policy programming, actor arrangements, political-administrative arrangement, para-state actors, public actors
