L'État-gouvernance. Essai sur l'orientation et la mise en oeuvre de la politique publique dans des conditions d'interdépendance

Abstract : This study examines the issue of designing and implementing public policy within conditions of interdependence where no one controls the actions of the others. The problem of improving standards of living in a way that benefits all is in this context a collective action problem ruled by both positive and negative externalities, which are respectively responsible for a lack of, and too many actions. The exploration of these externalities demonstrates that combining them facilitates their internalisation into decision making and the shift from a Nash equilibrium to a co-operative one. However, encouraging all actors involved in the pursuit of various economic and social development goals to seize the new opportunities offered in this perspective raises a governance problem.
To identify solutions to this we derive from the problem of economic growth a concept of governance which is equated with the sum of policy coordination, adaptation to local conditions and participation of business and civil society in the orientation of policies. A variety of organisational tools are analysed with respect to their potential in improving governance. The instrument which proves best qualified, partnership, is further evaluated using data from the field. The analysis identifies important weaknesses within governance systems which can form the basis for designing new governance mechanisms to make public policy more effective in a knowledge-based economy which thrives on innovation.
