Networked Governance - New Research Perspectives
Governance refers to the multiple ways (mechanisms and processes) in which individuals, companies, organizations, states in general and even supra-national/state formations arrive at and implement decisions. Governance research today faces more and more complex forms, consisting of different types of actors (individuals, states, IGOs, economic entities, NGOs etc.), instruments (law, suggestions, flexible norms etc.) and arenas from the local up to the global level.
The project seeks to explore older as well as emergent forms of governance by combining theories and methods developed in social network analysis and governance research. We aim to advance "networked governance" as a research paradigm that focuses on processes of coordination, arriving at and implementing decisions that take place in network(ed) (social) structures. In order achieve this research goal, this group brings together network and governance researchers from a wide range of disciplines, including anthropology, economics, education research, political science and sociology.
