German term or phrase: die Gestaltungsmacht des Politischen
From a report in connection with a survey of corporate social responsibility:

„Subpolitik“ ... : dass nämlich im Zuge der Globalisierung nicht mehr nur die klassischen politischen Institutionen Politik machen, sondern eine Vielzahl weiterer Akteure die politische Agenda mitbestimmt und um die **„Gestaltungsmacht des Politischen“** konkurriert.

The latter is another quote from sociologist Ulrich Beck, this time taken from 1993's Die Erfindung des Politischen.
If there is an official English quote, I obviously need to use it. Can anybody help? I am not as such looking for ideas on how to translate it. ;-)

TIA!

Explanation:
The book 'Die Erfindung des Politischen' is translated and published as The Reinvention of Politics (1996). That means that the quote must have some "official" translation.
Here is a website with all his tanslated book titles.

The book is still on the American and British market.
Hope that helps.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks for that input, Hilegard! I've now found an article (http://www.newstatesman.com/200111050022) by Beck that refers to "the power of politics to shape and persuade"
