2009 5:18PM Governing the European Union: policy choices and governance dilemmas 31 This takes us to the issue of ‘agenda setting’ (Bachrach and Baratz 1970). The key argument here is that there are many problems (both latent and more visible) that compete for the attention of governors and that as analysts, we risk missing a great deal if we treat governing as an apolitical process of responding to problems as though they were ‘out there’ in the world, fully formed and demanding a response. Such competition is visible in the overall ‘agenda universe’ (all issues discussed between people and in the media), but also in the ‘systemic agenda’ (the issues that the public regards as being especially problematic) and the ‘institutional agenda’ (problems that are being actively addressed by governors) (Cobb and Elder 1972).
