The Love Affair Between the Policy and the Voluntary Organizations

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review


A refreshing and empirically founded discussion on the nature of power in contemporary society. This volume brings new critical analysis and theories about hybridization of governance in the areas of financial policy, voluntary policy, educational policy and public steering technologies. The authors investigate how hybrids work and why they are so attractive. Why do contracts today look more like partnerships based on trust, dialogue and community feelings, and organizational decision look like unbinding premises? This collection moves the hybrid-discussion from metaphor to theory and provides diagnostics on the present condition of governance
