This scoping study is the first component of a larger ANZSOG-sponsored research project examining co-governance practices and especially trust between governments and communities.
Its purpose is to identify methods to operationalise and implement co-governance, and expectations of co-governance outcomes. This report presents the findings of the scoping study and identifies general principles that can be applied to different contexts, and includes illustrative examples of co-governance in specific jurisdictions and policy areas.
The project is being undertaken by the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC), UNSW Sydney, funded by ANZSOG and key NSW Government Agencies (the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet, as well as Customer Service, Regional NSW, and the NSW Public Service Commission).
