Multi-sectoral collaboration in central Queensland: bringing the state back in?

Community participation Government Australia Queensland

The current trend towards collaborative governance and community engagement has recently seen the emergence of more active and interventionist governments. This paper suggests that these new forms of governance reflect governments' desires to govern better by continuously considering who should be governed, how they should be governed, and by whom. It discusses the concepts of community engagement, multi sectoral collaboration, joined up government, regional governance and the rise of place management. The paper analyses recent attempts at multi sectoral collaboration made by the Queensland Government.
