Collaborative Governance Case Database


New peer-reviewed article published using cases from the database

A new article has appeared in Public Management Review drawing on cases derived from the collaboration database. In the publication, the authors examine under what circumstances collaborations can attain legitimacy and accountability, finding that these desirable outcomes can co-exist if collaborations meet specific conditions.

The article was able to provide an extensive Qualitative Case Analysis of multiple factors by drawing on 39 of the cases of the database, while adding qualitative insights by drawing on the extensive descriptions also in the database.

One of the authors Benedetta Trivellato reports: “It was great to be able to access so many cases for our analysis. Moreover, the database also proved to be a very transparent resource in the review process. One reviewer looked up the raw data of the cases we used as examples, allowing for an open and constructive debate about how we interpreted the data.
