Flemish term or phrase:machtscenakels
a word from the text of Belgian book, context:
"Diverse politieke partijen hebben hun standpunt ten voordele van de directe democratie afgezwakt of ingetrokken naarmate ze in de machtscenakels doordrongen."
Van Dale is no help at all.
I wonder if machinations/corridors of power is appropriate.
