1. Introduction This research on change and continuity in Polish environmental policy is made from a policy science perspective. For the purpose of this study, various insights from this discipline will contribute to an understanding of how and why policies have or have not changed. Most theories, insights, and models on policy-making and policy processes have been developed from the perspectives of policy analysts working in western democracies. From the 1960s and onwards, a continuous interaction between European and American scholars has resulted in comparative models of policymaking, related to either different political systems and national styles of policymaking (political culture) or to the construction of different types of policy problems addressed by the same political system (Andersson and Hisschemoller, 1997; Hisschemoller, 1993).

In addition, the stages model has been criticized for not being a causal model, for neglecting the fact that evaluations of existing programmes often affect agenda-setting, and for having a top-down bias which implies that so-called street-level bureaucrats and other actors are excluded from the analysis (Sabatier and Jenkins-Smith, 1993). It has however been argued that agenda-building focuses on phenomena such as power relations. non-decisions. and patterns of inclusions and exclusion of issues and actors rather than on rational management of the policy process (see, for example, Cobb and Elder, 1983 and Hisschemoller, 1993).

It should be emphasized that not all actors in a particular subsystem are members of a coalition. ). : 27). The belief systems of the advocacy coalitions are structured into three different categories (Sabatier, 1998: 112-113): 1. A Deep Core of normative and ontological axioms that is part of the personal philosophy and which apply to all policy areas. Deep core beliefs are thus very difficult to change. 2. A Policy Core of basic strategies for achieving deep core beliefs in a particular subsystem.
