This chapter draws together some of the main themes and issues addressed in the previous chapters and returns to some key questions and difficulties signalled previously. In particular we seek to answer, or at least tackle, the very basic questions invested in the object of this analysis – network governance. That is, can we make a case for the shift from government to governance, at least in relation to education, and thus can we distinguish between networks and network governance (Parker, 2007, p. 114)? Concomitantly, can we specify the work of network governance in relation to the examples presented? In other words, how does governance get done?

Keywords: Heterarchy; governance; policy networks; neoliberalism
