Actor beliefs and networks are often taken as separate and rather stable foundations of the policy process. However, beliefs can both be the reason of linkages and be influenced by linkages. This panel combines papers that address multiple relationship of beliefs, networks and the policy process with different methods and on different levels. It includes the systematic review of literature, single case studies, and comparisons. Empirical applications are given on the regional, national and EU level. Theoretical foundations include established and emerging perspectives like the Advocacy Coalition Framework, the Programmatic Action Framework, and the Social Identity Theory.
