Collaborative Governance Regimes

Whether the goal is building a local park or developing disaster response models, collaborative governance is changing the way public agencies at the local, regional, and national levels are working with each other and with key partners in the nonprofit and private sectors. While the academic literature has spawned numerous case studies and context- or policy-specific models for collaboration, the growth of these innovative collaborative governance systems has outpaced the scholarship needed to define it.

Collaborative Governance Regimes breaks new conceptual and practical ground by presenting an integrative framework for working across boundaries to solve shared problems, a typology for understanding variations among collaborative governance regimes, and an approach for assessing both process and productivity performance. This book draws on diverse literatures and uses rich case illustrations to inform scholars and practitioners about collaborative governance regimes and to provide guidance for designing, managing, and studying such endeavors in the future.

Collaborative Governance Regimes will be of special interest to scholars and researchers in public administration, public policy, and political science who want a framework for theory building, yet the book is also accessible enough for students and practitioners.

Reviews

"This is the best book ever published on collaborative governance. The authors have created a new analytic framework that encompasses all prior work on the topic. Every scholar of collaborative governance should own this book." — Craig Thomas, professor, Daniel J. Evans School of Public Affairs, University of Washington

"Emerson and Nabatchi have written a marvelous and timely book on one of the most important public administration topics of our time — collaborative governance. The book is theoretically rich, practically useful, and very well written. It is a must-read for all those wanting to, or needing to, collaborate to advance the common good." — John Bryson, McKnight Presidential Professor of Planning and Public Affairs, Humphrey School of Public Affairs, University of Minnesota

"This volume offers a compelling framework for understanding collaborative governance and the authors apply that framework to actual cases. It is rare that such an intellectually-grounded pursuit can result in usable and actionable knowledge. This book does just that." — Michael McGuire, professor and executive associate dean for Bloomington School of Public and Environmental Affairs, Indiana University
