This chapter focuses on political networks that help produce results from collaborative initiatives, as well as on a wide range of political entities which agree to work jointly to solve common problems. A number of high-level political personalities from these networks are engaged in continuous policy changes and implementation. These networks can rely on a number of implementation tools ranging from voluntary approaches to those that are regulated. The participants of such networks focus on formulating policy-level solutions, with policy strategies as the main tool to achieve the desired results. The chapter also identifies factors necessary to assess the contribution of political networks to produce the desired results.

Keywords:   political networks, collaborative initiatives, political personalities, policy changes, policy strategies
