This study looks at the 1992 MacSharry Reform to the EU's Common Agricultural Policy. Through researching reform proposals and statements from officials, I try to answer the question "how did policy preferences change, and what impact did this have on the reform?" My findings are that policy preferences did not change significantly, but they did have an impact on the reform.
