This chapter attempts to reconstruct the beliefs of the chosen policy communities, based on responses to a detailed questionnaire and upon data from the interviews themselves. The method of snowball sampling was used as a useful aggregate indicator of the policy communities in the regions and issue areas involved. This chapter considers each of the six groups in turn: the Wales and Brittany generic groups, then the language-advocacy and training and education groups in Wales and Brittany. The discussion concludes in considering whether there are any lessons to be drawn from comparative experience.

Keywords:   policy communities, snowball sampling, Wales, Brittany, language-advocacy, education groups
