The conclusion of this book highlights the major insights surrounding the comparative study of advocacy coalitions and public policies on hydraulic fracturing across seven countries. Based on the chapter findings, it discusses insights into factors influencing the structure and functioning of policy subsystems, the characteristics of advocacy coalitions, and the nature of public policies on hydraulic fracturing. Furthermore, the conclusion presents critical challenges to the comparative study of policy processes and public policy. Finally, it offers a discussion of the contributions to hydraulic fracturing politics and three recommendations for future advocacy coalition framework research: the incorporation of subsystem contexts, the development of methodological best practices, and a focus on coalition resources and strategies.
