Theories of Governance

Interesting to see broader use of the term "governance" as not just state government but of any process to find agreement and influence collective action. I'm a past Political Science major, then served on many nonprofit boards, in addition to having employ in educational systems and of course acted voluntarily as an activist in many groups. Now I'm studying nonprofit governance in an academic way -- in a certificate program both online & in classroom settings.

I'm pleased to hear that there's a growing recognition of interdependent operations of the public & private nonprofits (state govt units being an example of public nonprofit organizations) and intersections with private business, plus informal groups concerned with governing the commons. Both in the US and internationally there's a trend in multiple disciplines to develop theories of governance & this is just one encapsulation.
