This chapter examines the role of reflexive governance and multilevel decision-making in agricultural policy through conceptual examples and empirical evidence. It demonstrates the usefulness of this concept in analyzing policy change in multilevel governance systems. The chapter focuses on how new types of collective entities, such as civil society groups and sectoral organizations, participate in redefining policy concepts in environmental policy at different levels of collective decision-making. It examines conceptual contributions to the reflective governance debate based on different theories, and also discusses how changes in the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the European Union become eligible as a transition toward reflexive governance. The CAP is selected for analysis as it demonstrates a case where multilevel governance works as a barrier against more reflexive forms of governance.

Keywords:   reflexive governance, sectoral organization, European Union
