This chapter presents the “Analysis of Determinants of Policy Impact” (ADEPT) model, an approach to policy analysis in health promotion that is easy-to-use, parsimonious, and empirically tested. The ADEPT model is based on a theory of action that has been adapted to the organizational and policy level. This chapter discusses the ADEPT model with regards to theories that have been developed specifically to explain the policy process and to the structure/agency debate that is going on in health promotion. It concludes with a discussion of the potential of ADEPT for those engaged in policy development and in policy analysis, emphasizing its versatility and its embedded conception of the process underlying policy development.

Keywords:   action theory, policy analysis and development, structure and agency, institutional rational choice, multiple streams model, advocacy coalition framework
