Abstract

This article seeks to understand how transnationally acting non-governmental organisations influence politics and policy-making. It is firmly positioned inthe field of transnational relations. However, in order to address some shortcomings of the prevalent approaches in this area of study the article draws on notions from the literature on social movements and from sociology. In order to grasp the patterns of interactions of the relevant transnational and local political actors, the article combines a policy process approach to the study of social movements with a general theory of political fields. The general theory of political fields provides a suitable theoretical background for understanding the dynamic dimension of political interactions in the multilevel arenas that form the infrastructure of todayćs global politics. The presented theoretical points are developed on the basis of an empirical case that focuses on the conflict over the second Czech nuclear-power station Temelín.
