Library of the University of Amsterdam (Potgieterzaal C0.01). Title: "New Governance: Yet another new regulatory paradigm?"

Event details of ACLE Compliance and Enforcement Seminar: Jeroen van der Heijden (UvA / Australia National University RegNet)
Date 10 September 2012
Time 11:45 -13:15
Location Universiteitsbibliotheek
Room Library of the University of Amsterdam - Potgieterzaal C0.01


Over the last two decades a new approach to public problem solving has emerged. It builds on collaboration between state and non-state stakeholders in addressing public problems through experimental forms of decision making and policy implementation. This seminar reviews the rich literature on this new governance paradigm in political science, public administration and legal scholarship; and, applies it to a study into new governance in the Australian and Dutch building sectors. The aim to do so is (i) to understand the extent to which new governance theory has crystalized over the last 20 years, or so; and, (ii) to uncover future trajectories for new governance theory that may help us to better understand when, where and why new governance will be more (or less) effective in solving public problems than other approaches.
