By Elisabeth Fosse and Asbjoern Roeiseland. From the Introduction: "The purpose of this article is to scrutinise the Norwegian health promotion policy in order to study how the ideology of the Ottawa charter has actually has been put into public policy. The article takes its point of departure in Norwegian public health policy and how it has been implemented in the last decades. In this purpose, we draw on theories of Political science, more specifically theories where the organisation and implementation of public policy is being scrutinised."
