Stakeholder theory has its roots in the business science literature, but has also come to play an important role in policy discourse since the 1990s. This chapter presents stakeholder theory and discusses its relevance for analyzing addiction policy. In doing so, it particularly emphasizes how different stakeholders have different salience with regard to influencing policy. In this chapter, addiction policy concerns policies in relation to alcohol and drugs that seek to control and regulate the use of these substances and to handle problems that may be related to this use. The chapter concludes that stakeholder analysis can be a useful tool for analyzing addiction policy because it can make visible different groups’ interests and influence on policy.
