I am interested in the intersection of governance, planning and public policy. In particular I believe that collaborative approaches to governance are essential to our dynamic, complex and changing world but I also note that formal government makes such approaches difficult if not impossible. Networks and other informal processes however are filling in the gap. My goal is to develop new ways to think about and approach governance, planning an public policy that accommodate collaborative, innovative and boundary spanning activities that will be essential in the 21st Century.
