The Life Cycles of the Council on Environmental Quality and the Environmental Protection Agency

1970 - 2035

James K. Conant and Peter J. Balint

  • Provides an in-depth examination of the CEQ and EPA over a forty-year period of time
  • Employs four theoretical organizational life cycle models (biological, partisan political, incremental, and issue attention) to predict the possible trajectories of the CEQ and EPA
  • Develops a new framework for future research on executive branch organizations by providing a means for systemic comparison of the four life cycle models
  • The authors' findings are useful for environmental politics and policy, public administration, organization theory, and public budgeting
