The subject matter of this thesis is the analysis of implementation of three of the programmes of the National Solidarity Programme-PRONASOL. A study of the implementation of PRONASOL is essential because the relationship between policy success or failure and policy implementation has been poorly studied for the Mexican context This thesis aims to provide a detailed analysis of the process of implementation of three of the programmes of the PRONASOL in the state of Campeche, Mexico, which will be used to test relevant theoretical assumptions about policy implementation. In terms of policy implementation the dissertation explores empirically the link between individual behaviour and the political, economic and legal context in which the action takes place by considering contextual variables. The thesis uses the case study method to test the adequacy of theory of policy implementation to explain the cases under analysis. This method was useful first, because it allowed to emphasise contextual conditions which may have significant influence on the phenomenon under study. Second, because the research aimed to describe cases in which the conclusions of national studies based on aggregated data were not helpful. A contrasting strategy was used to extent the explanatory potential of the case study method which was achieved through the selection of programmes and also through the selection of municipalities and localities in which the study was carried out The dissertation contributes to the understanding of the link between concrete and immediate day-to-day decisions by particular actors with the longterm structural features of Mexican society and so, to shed light on the historical trends, institutional processes, and political decisions that are interwoven in the implementation of public policies.
