Article
Collaboration has become an imperative of many new healthcare policies; however, little attention has been paid to how system-level narratives in both policy documents and the media create boundaries that shape implementation processes. By using boundary work as a theoretical lens, this article critically analyses the discourse found in both policy...

Although network governance has become increasingly popular in both research and practice, its anticipated benefits do not always materialize. Although literature on network governance acknowledges the challenges that result from its introduction, scholars tend to assume these challenges can be managed and rarely analyze how the different participa...

Dit hoofdstuk gaat over de vraag waarom samenwerken zo moeilijk is, maar ook wat je kunt doen om met samenwerken toch resultaten te boeken. Het hoofdstuk is geschreven op basis van kennis en ervaring uit de bestuurskunde. Een jaar of twintig geleden was dat misschien raar geweest. Wat heeft een bestuurskundige immers met zorgvraagstukken te maken?...

Dinges Tijdens onze onderzoeken stuiten we regelmatig op professionals die er bovengemiddeld in slagen om mensen in een kwetsbare positie toch te helpen bij het veroveren of behouden van een plekje in de samenleving. Professionals die met (meer) hart en ziel door roeien en ruiten gaan. En met succes. Wat ze precies doen is voor hun collega's, en so...

Beleid wordt gebaseerd op de theorie van de beleidsmaker over hoe het beleid in de praktijk gaat werken. Volgens de dominante bestuurskundige literatuur (Hoogerwerf & Herweijer, 2014) is dit een voornamelijk lineair proces. In dit hoofdstuk betogen de auteurs, mede aan de hand van de implementatie van de Participatiewet, dat beleid maken niet lange...

Frailty management focuses on optimizing the physical and psychological functioning of older people with frail health through early risk identification and intervention in primary care. Such care programs demand a joint effort by primary care professionals and older persons, one in which professionals are expected to promote or facilitate self-mana...
Article
Full-text available
In this article, we aim to show that the treatment of wicked problems in the literature on public administration approaches is inadequate. We briefly discuss the literature on wicked problems and propose a conceptualization of wicked problems that, we think, shows the core of the problem of wicked problems. Wicked problems, we argue, are wicked bec...

Vaak zien we samenwerking als de ultieme mogelijkheid om complexe problemen in een complexe omgeving aan te pakken. Denk aan professionals die samen gezinnen ondersteunen waar de problemen zich opstapelen. Of aan gemeenten en maatschappelijke partners die een ‘sluitende aanpak’ ontwikkelen om de participatie van jongeren te verbeteren. Niet zelden...
Chapter
Street-level bureaucrats do their work in different contexts and these contexts pose different control challenges. This study distinguishes two context variables: complexity and ambiguity. When ambiguity and complexity are simultaneously high, managers face a double control challenge - achieving both the expertise to address high complexity and the...
Chapter
Introduction Street-level bureaucracy is two things: it is an effort to have policy implementation conform to general and abstract rules; and it is an effort to apply rules to specific and concrete cases. This central assumption informs our analysis of the managerial control of street-level action. The first assumes control of action through genera...
Article
Social policy development and reform in corporatist welfare states often follows a pattern of subsequent collectivization and de-collectivization. This has to do, the article argues, with the social problems these phases address. Early social policy development forms a response to Olson-type collective action problems that organized actors (labour...
Article
Shifts in governance can be conceived of as a response to policy capacities being shared—in a material sense—between centralized and decentralized levels of government. A comparative case study is conducted of three conceptually different shifts in governance. Unclear responsibility relations lead to “paradoxes of decentralization,” in which the ap...

This is a case study of Vlisco, a Dutch textile printing company since 1846 that produces batik cloth for the West African consumer market. We focus on the changing status of batik cloth in West Africa and related shifts in the relations of Vlisco with its consumers and local trade partners over a period of almost two centuries. We conclude that in...
Article

The pursuit of a thriving European “knowledge economy” is hampered by a onedimensional conception of what it is. The authors of the article conceptualise three types of knowledge society and outline the consequences of this analysis for the leaders of the EU and the Lisbon Agenda.

In this paper we will analyse the usage of FTA to support decision-making in employment policy relate to specific occupational groups. The examples can be better understood if one focus on the nanotechnology and its implications on some sectors (clothing, bio-medical engineering, micro-electronics). The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the i...
Article
Old age pensions are one of the keystones of traditional solidaristic welfare states. They are based on systematic risk assessments, starting from the assumption of the typical standardized life course. From this perspective “ageing” is a predictable income risk, and one that has been managed by the traditional welfare state in applying actuarial p...
Article
In this article, the authors argue that there is no such thing as the knowledge society. Like many others authors, they claim that the fundamental transformations of our time can be typified as the end of the national ‘industrial society’ and the move towards some kind of global society dominated by the production and use of knowledge. They argue,...
Article
Full-text available
In this article, we propose a method for the disaggregation of welfare state regimes that enhances our insight into innovative welfare state change; that is, change beyond the borders of regime logic. Welfare states, we argue, are composed of different approaches to various social risks, and the approach to each social risk is often ‘hybrid’: it co...
