In the post-war UK, policy has been shaped by social reformism in the domain of culture, leisure and sport. Conservative and Labour governments gradually set up quangos such as the Arts Council, the Sports Council and the Countryside Commission to plan and develop facilities and opportunities. In 1994 the Department of National Heritage empowered agencies to distribute National Lottery funds. Despite changes in governments, this ‘arm’s length’ approach to policy has been both politically and ideologically expedient by providing institutional continuity.

A distinction can be drawn between ‘insiders’ and ‘outsiders’ in the policy arena. ‘Insiders’ usually carry discrete professional, commercial or departmental interests and are committed advocates of policy, and ‘outsiders’ are those experts who lay claim to offer a more detached, analytical and holistic approach. The ‘outsiders’, often social science academics interested in politics, society and organisational behaviour, gather contextual knowledge of policies and processes at work, whereas ‘insiders’ have careers in consultancy, PR and marketing, in partnerships, projects and research networks.
