Managing Complex Networks
Strategies for the Public Sector
Walter J M Kickert, Erik-Hans Klijn, Joop F M Koppenjan
Although the concept of policy networks is now well-established in the field, most research has to content itself with description and analysis of their contribution to policy failure. This book goes further. It accepts policy networks as a fundamental characteristic of modern societies and presents an overview of the strategies for the management of these networks, as well as illustrating the various strategies for intervention.
