I'm interested in governance and the mechanisms for moving beyond institutional walls, across organizational and sectoral boundaries, and in flattening hierarchies. I use anarchism as a model for collaborative governance. I study intersectoral networks, currently with an emphasis on how they emerge and why they fail. I look for ways to increase communication and exchange between governmental and nonprofit actors.
