Abstract

Why has the problem of tobacco energized NGOs and policy entrepreneurs in the USA but much less in the EU? Why has transgenic food provoked similar kinds of collective responses in the EU, but much less in the USA? First, the USA and EU-15 possess different 'cultural markers' in that they express different values/collective preferences. Second, institutional arrangements vary and steer even similar preferences and values to produce different political results.
