This concluding chapter argues that the three cases showcased in previous chapters demonstrate that gatekeeper adoption matters, usually occurs after a period of agenda vetting and often doesn't happen at all. Additionally, while agenda vetting is a function of a cluster of factors, intranetwork relations play an important role in gatekeepers' judgments about when to adopt new issues or to exercise agenda denial. Not only do hierarchies among transnational actors confer power on central organizations to “vet” the advocacy agenda, but network effects also help constitute those organizations' preferences. To conclude, the chapter outlines the implications of this book's study for issue entrepreneurs, for global policy elites, and for students of international relations.
