1 In fact, about a third of the world’s population live under this regime form, a larger proportion than under any other system of government. Although the states that feature parliamentary constitutions span all continents, Europe remains the heartland of parliamentarism. In Western Europe (leaving aside microstates such as the Vatican), only Switzerland is not parliamentary. And, by and large, the great majority of European citizens accept their parliamentary constitutions as legitimate vehicles for popular representation.
He attempts to conceptualize the triad by ﬁrst dealing with the relationship between policy makers and target groups as the basic relationship in which delegation to independent agencies is embedded. It appears that this relationship has a number of elements similar to the logic of delegation because of the ‘risk investments’ involved but can best be characterized by trust relationships. The main reason to delegate is the uncertainty of policy makers about the trustworthiness of scientists. Embedding delegation into a larger framework of trustor–trustee relationship in research policy – and this is a new perspective – has consequences for the position of independent agencies.
He starts from the assumption that politicians need loyal and efﬁcient public employees to stay in ofﬁce. Instead of assuming adversarial relationships or opportunism, as is usually done in principal–agent theory, he refers, like Braun in this book, to a theoretical perspective that treats delegation as a relationship of mutual gain and includes the notion of trust. Thus it is possible to see that not only the agent, but also the principal, may shirk or violate trust. e. the policy maker, to be sure that public employees work hard and that they are loyal, while employees must be sure that their effort and loyalty are rewarded.
