The Agricultural Policy Community
Maintaining a Closed Relationship
This chapter examines the relationship between the National Farmer's Union (NFU) and the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food (MAFF), which has traditionally been seen as one of the classic examples of a corporatist relationship. It is argued that the relationship should be characterized as a closed policy community. The chapter also examines the nature and development of the agricultural community. Finally, it assesses the chances of the closed community being broken open in the future.
