Networked Governance : New Research Perspectives, Hardback Book

Networked Governance : New Research Perspectives Hardback

Edited by Wenzel Matiaske, Betina Hollstein


This edited volume seeks to explore established as well as emergent forms of governance by combining social network analysis and governance research.

In doing so, contributions take into account the increasingly complex forms which governance faces, consisting of different types of actors (e.g. individuals, states, economic entities, NGOs, IGOs), instruments (e.g. law, suggestions, flexible norms) and arenas from the local up to the global level, and which more and more questions theoretical models that have focused primarily on markets and hierarchies.

The topics addressed in this volume are processes of coordination, arriving at and implementing decisions taking place in network(ed) (social) structures; such as governance of work relations, of financial markets, of innovation and politics.

These processes are investigated and discussed from sociologists', political scientists' and economists' viewpoints.
