PPA 401 Collaborative Governance

This course examines the expanding use of “partnerships” between government and other agents, both public and private, in the delivery of “public goods”. Challenged by fiscal pressures and demands for more involvement in policy-making and delivery of services, governments have experimented with new mechanisms ranging from integrated procurement to networked regulation. This course will consider the ideological drivers, management practices and consequences of these new administrative arrangements on governance, public administration and democracy.
