PA 620A - Collaborative Governance in Theory, Practice and Research

The aim of this course is to provide students with a grounding in collaborative governance: the underlying theories that support it; how it is practiced in various policy arenas; and the recent findings from research to improve its use. Students will be asked to critique the use of collaborative governance in different case studies, apply principles of practice to simulated contexts, and develop alternative collaborative approaches to hypothetical or contemporary governance challenges.
