Abstract:This research investigated the effect of political parties within the political arena in the process of developing the National Prevention Agreement in the Netherlands. The main research question for this research was “How did political parties in the Dutch cabinet, parliament and ministerial positions affect the development of the National Prevention Agreement?”. Three expectations were formulated. First, the researcher expected the degree of party mandate fulfilment to affect the policy output. The second expectation was that the new cabinet would create an attention shift. The third expectation was that ministerial allocation would affect the development of the National Prevention Agreement. Using parliamentary documents, newspaper articles and interview data, the researcher found minimal effect of party mandate fulfilment as well as mixed evidence regarding ministerial allocation. The results supported the expectation of an attention shift.
