This introductory chapter discusses the selection process whereby certain ideas are precluded from gaining a foothold on the transnational advocacy agenda, by focusing on the political power involved in agenda vetting. These “negative events” are as significant as visible campaigns in constituting global issues, norms, and standards and reshaping state behavior; and the process of agenda denial, while examined in the domestic policy literature, has been drastically understudied by international relations scholars. By comparing the more unsuccessful ventures to the rich empirical literature on issues that have successfully emerged in the past, the chapter provides an overview of the politics of agenda vetting in practice.

Keywords:   agenda setting, agenda vetting, advocacy agenda, advocacy elites, agenda denial, international relations
