In this seminar, Patrick Kenis will address governance from a network perspective. Research on network governance has identified three modes of network governance: shared governance, lead governance and the network administrative organization. In the seminar, professor Kenis revisits these modes of network governance and discusses the conditions under which they occur, the contingencies that determine their effectiveness and their limitations.
