This chapter draws on academic studies of the public policy process to identify some key concepts that have been deployed to aid understanding of the making and implementation of public policy, and the factors that might contribute to its final form and features. The key concepts that are introduced to this modern conception of food policy are the notions of power relationships, historical institutionalism, governance, governmentality, policy networks and multi-level governance. The nature of the contemporary governance of food in relation to, and under, the “rule” of public policy is then examined and explained.

Keywords:   food policy, good governance, public policy, policy networks, multi-level governance
