The Principal-Agent Approach to Politics: Policy Implementation and Public Policy-Making
Author(s) Jan-Erik Lane
ABSTRACT

The principal-agent models may be employed to elucidate central problems in interaction between principals and agents in both policy implementation and public policy-making concerning performance and remuneration. One then hits upon the double principal-agent relationships that are typical of the policy cycle, from policy-making to policy implementation and back: 1) government as principal for agents in public service delivery; 2) the population as principal for political agents under various forms of rulership.
