  • Public health and politics: how political science can help us move forward
    • Authors: Bekker M; Greer S, Azzopardi-Muscat N, et al.
      Pages: 1 - 2
      Abstract: Public health and politics are two sides of the same coin. Just combining the words ‘public’ and ‘health’ makes a clear statement that health can only be achieved by the concerted action of many people who must work together in pursuit of a common goal. Acknowledging this raises questions, though: How should they work together' As a voluntary grouping of those with shared interests, where people can join or leave as they desire' Or within an organized state, governed by laws that safeguard rights but demand obligations' Such questions, addressing issues like the relationship between the individual and the state and the distribution of power and resources in society, are at the heart of political science. But they are also crucial to efforts to improve health. Too often, we shy away from politics, instead adopting a narrow and, arguably, easier technocratic approach, setting out why an evidence-based action should be done without asking how it might be done and devising an appropriate implementation strategy.

  • Political analysis in public health: middle-range concepts to make sense
           of the politics of health
    • Authors: Greer S; Bekker M, Azzopardi-Muscat N, et al.
      Pages: 3 - 6
      Abstract: Public health is about policy, power, and the public and as such might be thought necessarily political. That does not mean, however, that the place of political analysis and engagement in public health is uncontroversial, and there have been longstanding arguments that to discuss politics sullies the scientific nature of public health. This article, introducing a special issue on political science in public health, argues that rigorous use of middle-range theory can inform our analysis of public health problems and avoid the risks of politicization, excessive abstraction or excessive concreteness. It summarizes key political science concepts discussed in the papers: epistemic communities, interest groups, advocacy coalitions, political parties, institutions, legalism, discourse and the political economy of labour. We hope that the series will provide the public health community with some tools and methods for how to integrate public health knowledge into the sphere of decision making in an appropriate way.

  • Epistemic communities and experts in health policy-making
    • Authors: Löblová O.
      Pages: 7 - 10
      Abstract: The role of evidence and expertise in policy-making has been of interest to public health professionals and political scientists alike. The public health community often sees its efforts as part of a linear knowledge transfer process and tends to blame itself for inadequate communication or translation of its arguments to policy-makers’ language when its efforts fail. Political science, especially theories of the policy process, offer alternative perspectives to explain the success or failure of experts’ preferred policy goals. This paper focuses on the concept of epistemic communities (groups of experts with a common policy goal derived from their shared knowledge) in policy-making, drawing on examples from the field of health technology assessment in Europe. By combining the parsimony and the central focus on experts of the linear knowledge transfer model with the recognition of complexity of political science, the epistemic communities concept provides a useful structure for the public health community to analyze its efforts to influence policy.

  • Using the Advocacy Coalition Framework to understand EU pharmaceutical
           policy
    • Authors: Brooks E.
      Pages: 11 - 14
      Abstract: Models of interest group politics can help public health professionals (PHPs) to identify potential allies and establish mechanisms of sustainable political influence. This article focusses on a particular model, known as the Advocacy Coalition Framework (ACF), and its explanations of coalition behaviour, the role of scientific information and the ways in which coalitions can bring about policy change. The analysis illustrates the relevance of the ACF for public health by drawing on examples from the recent policy debate on direct-to-consumer advertising of prescription drugs (DTCA-PD) in the European Union (EU). It explores the strengths and weaknesses of the ACF in explaining why ‘control’ of particular governmental units was key to the anti-DTCA coalition success, how the evidence base was used strategically and why the pro-DTCA coalition ultimately failed in bringing about major policy change. The article aims to equip PHPs with a tool which can be used to understand and engage with the policy process. Moreover, in offering a more nuanced view of this process, a case is made for moving beyond traditional, linear conceptions of the policy process and engaging in further research which uses political science concepts to inform the study and practice of public health. The article concludes with a set of recommendations for practitioners and researchers, emphasizing the value of political science for the former and the need for the latter to reflect on the accessibility of policy studies for PHPs.

      Abstract: This paper presents the basic political science consensus on parties and their impact on policy, then turns to focus on the impact of the populist radical right (PRR) parties on policy, what PRR parties have done to implement their views and whether they make a difference. Three effects on policy were established: 1) they de-emphasize the issue, preferring to focus on migration, crime and security rather than health and welfare and 2) they prefer to pursue exclusionary policies. 3) it is not clear whether they increase or decrease benefits for the “native” populations they claim to represent. In short PRR parties make a difference whether to migrants or conservative governments, this party group matters.

  • Comparative institutional analysis for public health: governing voluntary
           
    • Authors: Bekker M; Mays N, Kees Helderman J, et al.
      Pages: 19 - 25
      Abstract: Democratic institutions and state-society relations shape governance arrangements and expectations between public and private stakeholders about public health impact. We illustrate this with a comparison between the English Public Health Responsibility Deal (RD) and the Dutch ‘All About Health…’ (AaH) programme. As manifestations of a Whole-of-Society approach, in which governments, civil society and business take responsibility for the co-production of economic utility and good health, these programmes are two recent collaborative platforms based on voluntary agreements to improve public health. Using a ‘most similar cases’ design, we conducted a comparative secondary analysis of data from the evaluations of the two programmes. The underlying rationale of both programmes was that voluntary agreements would be better suited than regulation to encourage business and civil society to take more responsibility for improving health. Differences between the two included: expectations of an enforcing versus facilitative role for government; hierarchical versus horizontal coordination; big business versus civil society participants; top-down versus bottom-up formulation of voluntary pledges and progress monitoring for accountability versus for learning and adaptation. Despite the attempt in both programmes to base voluntary commitments on trust, the English ‘shadow of hierarchy’ and adversarial state-society relationships conditioned non-governmental parties to see the pledges as controlling, quasi-contractual agreements that were only partially lived up to. The Dutch consensual political tradition enabled a civil society-based understanding and gradual acceptance of the pledges as the internalization by partner organizations of public health values within their operations. We conclude that there are institutional limitations to the implementation of generic trust-building and learning-based models of change ‘Whole-of-Society’ approaches.

  • Legalism and tobacco control in the EU
    • Authors: Jarman H.
      Pages: 26 - 29
      Abstract: Tobacco control policies rely heavily on law and are steeped in litigation. Examining the creation of tobacco control laws in the European Union, this article lays out the potential costs and benefits of legalism for public health practitioners and advocates. Legalism is a form of governance that relies heavily on the authority of law to settle political disputes, with consequences for the ways in which governments make, and advocates push for, public health policies. To the extent that legalism creates procedural problems and distortions in the content of public health policy, then the content of law and its making is a public health problem. On the other hand, litigation can also be a public health tool, and an enforceable, justiciable right to health is a powerful political and legal weapon in its own right.

  • Addressing vaccination hesitancy in Europe: a case study in
           state–society relations
    • Authors: Kieslich K.
      Pages: 30 - 33
      Abstract: In light of recent outbreaks of diseases such as measles in Europe, policymakers and public health practitioners are seeking strategies to address anti-vaccination attitudes and to increase immunization rates. Identifying effective strategies that will not further alienate vaccination sceptics raises challenges that go to the heart of relations between the state and society. Drawing on accounts of state–society relations, this article discusses how the problem of vaccination hesitancy might be explained from a political science perspective. Discourse-analytical approaches emphasize the importance of storylines, politics and social context in explaining a range of phenomena. Given the number and strength of prevailing discourses in groups with anti-vaccination sentiments, the literature on discourse coalitions can offer perspectives on the challenges that arise in designing strategies to address vaccine hesitancy. Paying closer attention to individual reasons why parents are vaccine hesitant might allow for designing strategies that are more suited to address concerns. However, given the pervasiveness of the discourses of anti-vaccination movements, challenges in reaching citizens who are sceptical of vaccines will remain.

  • Labour politics as public health: how the politics of industrial relations
           and workplace regulation affect health
    • Authors: Greer S.
      Pages: 34 - 37
      Abstract: There are three main areas of social and economic policy that influence health: the welfare state, industrial organization (unions), and labor regulation. Public health literature and analysis traditionally focuses on the taxing and spending of the welfare state. This paper presents highlights from the extensive literature in political economy in order to argue that industrial relations and workplace regulation are political and crucial to public health. The routes by which they influence public health include wage inequality, workplace health and safety, political engagement and investment in human capital. The magnitude of impact can be impressive: the United Kingdom’s taxation and spending have about as much redistributive impact as that of Sweden, but that is not enough to compensate for the inequality produced by the UK’s liberal labor market. The trend across wealthy countries has been to weaker unions and less workplace regulation and we can see this as a likely cause of public health problems and health inequalities into the future.
