Do these costs increase over time? This normative approach can distract from the analytic use of the institutional capacity concept to see whether central government action may not be a more appropriate way to achieve a particular end. A similar issue is identified by Lowndes and Wilson (2001) in relation to the social capital literature, where they criticize Putnam for eliding democratic goals with policy performance goals. They argue that Putnam makes a case for social capital enhancing policy performance, and then conflates the two ends; since the democratic goals are a sine qua non, this results in a strongly normative argument for developing social capital.

Neither should networks be considered as unbounded. Each network will exclude as well as include certain actors, and the character of the boundaries that are drawn will be important for defining that network and how it operates. In these ways, a distinction can be drawn between issues networks, policy networks and (the more exclusive) policy communities (Dowding 1995; Rhodes 1997). The institutionalist emphasis on cultural dimensions of organizations (seen as networks) further emphasizes the significance of actors being members of multiple networks.

In all our case studies, the key actors are identified and the way that they form into a network is discussed. The starting point is usually a formal network analysis, that is, the stated and public connections between actors. Bomberg (1998: 167) defines a network in policy contexts as: an identifiable and policy-concerned set of public and private actors who depend on one another for resources such as information, expertise, access and legitimacy. Most networks form around functions (implementation, regulation) and/ or specific policy sectors (agriculture, environment) These may be outlined in a formal document, particularly if the network has its own organizational character as a unit, a partnership or some such identifiable body.
