The governance of problems

Show Summary Details


Contemporary democracies need to develop a better governance of problems, as all too often policy is a sophisticated answer to the wrong problem. This book offers a new approach to public-policy making as problem processing, bringing together aspects of puzzling, powering, and participation, relating them to cultural theory, to issues about networks, to models of democracy, and to modes of citizen participation. It is part of a growing body of work in policy analysis literature.

Keywords: contemporary democracies; public-policy making; problem processing; cultural theory; networks; democratic models; citizen participation; policy analysis
