About this book

Can new modes of governance, such as public-private partnerships, stakeholder consultations and networks, promote effective environmental policy performance as well as increase deliberative and participatory quality?

This book argues that in academic inquiry and policy practice there has been a deliberative turn, manifested in a revitalized interest in deliberative democracy coupled with calls for novel forms of public-private governance. By linking theory and practice, the contributors critically examine the legitimacy and effectiveness of new modes of governance, using case studies on climate, forestry, water and food safety policies from the local to the global level.
