    Abstract:
    The decreasing importance of state evoked the debate about the role of professional networks in the IR. The epistemic communities also became relevant actors of international politics. This paper specifies conditions of how they involve in the political negotiations about poverty eradication within the frame of the 2030 Agenda. The paper uses a social constructivist concept of the epistemic community which explains the relation between its professional coherence and its involvement in the political negotiations. The epistemic communities have involved in the political negotiations about poverty eradication, but this has not been reflected in related scholarly literature yet. The analysis confirms the link between the weak inner professional coherence of a network associating an epistemic community and its weak ability to spread a belief during political negotiations. It also reveals relationship between higher political support and higher level of consideration of the beliefs of governmental networks associating epistemic communities in political negotiations that were created by resolutions of the UNGA and the ECOSOC.
