The 21st century society is shaped by improvisation and driven by incidents and impulses: one where agents engage in problem-solving practices and freely deal with institutional logics and opportunities. Is it possible to improve improvisation from a normative perspective? In what way do 'crafting communities' contribute to this public challenge? And to what extent do new forms of governance emerge from these improvising and crafting practices?
Emerging Governance presents several innovative studies addressing all these novel questions and more about public policy and governance. Topics vary from the decentralization of care and welfare and citizen participation in security policy to current regulation froms and the functionality of social research in network society. This book will be of interest to scholars in Public Administration, Politics Sciences and Social Sciences.
