Abstract

Governance is a general concept which describes some of the complexity of political and policy processes by focussing on the relationships existing between governments and the governed. Policy making is an arena full of actors who are not only vertically structured but also linked together by a series of informal relationships (Solomon 2008; Richardson 2012), and we need to understand how these work so that society is steered. The use of the term ‘governance’ helps to capture these additional aspects of government and governing, where a multitude of actors interact in both formal and informal ways (for example, international relations, international political economy, global studies).
