In that sense, political modernisation is an ongoing process of ‘structural conditioning’. , but also the structural properties of policy arrangements (rules, resources, discourses; see for their operationalisation: Liefferink, this volume), are the context or conditions in which agencies’ actions take place. These structural processes and properties constrain and enable agencies. To advance their interests and while trying to affect policy outcomes, actors act upon the structural properties and opportunities of policy arrangements.

More often than not, it is the unintended d outcome of social interactions and outcomes in many policy arrangements across time and space. For example a possible unintended outcome of the reduction of tariffs by governments in several countries around the world is a further liberalisation of world trade in agricultural products. We distinguish the following four steps in a strategic analysis: 1. an analysis of social interactions and policy outcomes in policy arrangement A; 2. an analysis of the change or stabilisation of the structural properties (rules, resources, discourses) of policy arrangement A, as a consequence of these social interactions and policy outcomes; 3.

The next section starts with the discussion about the ‘duality of structure’ literature to grasp the mutual relationships between political modernisation and policy agents embedded in policy arrangements at the theoretical level. With that, we distance ourselves from simple mechanical causal models, in which for example structure is assumed to determine processes and outcomes of interaction. Instead, duality implies a subtle, two-way, multi-consequential model, in which structural processes in and structural properties of social systems constrain and enable meaningful action, while agents (re)produce and transform these processes and properties through their meaningful conduct at the same time.
