How institutional change may be captured and conceptualised is currently an important issue facing the agri-economics sector. This book deals with the question of how we may capture and conceptualise the type of institutional change which is ideational in nature.

The book discusses the institutional change within the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) with a specific focus on the development of organic farming as a policy field in the period from 1970 to 2005.
