This insightful Handbook presents readers with a comprehensive range of original research within the field of Collaborative Public Management (CPM). As a central area of study and practice in public administration, the Handbook explores the most important questions facing collaboration and provides future research directions and new areas of study.

Featuring expert contributions from a diverse range of scholars, this Handbook showcases the emergence of collaborative governance research and charts connections among the multiple arenas of CPM; including public/private partnerships, emergency management and climate change management. Chapters cover the fundamental practices and limitations of CPM as well as future possibilities. Reflecting on leading theories and research, the Handbook argues that CPM is both an evolving field, as well as a varied and maturing one that is worthy of continued exploration.

The Handbook will be a valuable resource to scholars and graduate students in subjects such as public administration and public policy, who are interested in examining current research and approaches within the field. The examination of collaborative initiatives will also be beneficial to administrative leaders in public services who want to understand how to lead and manage more dynamic arrangements.
Critical Acclaim
‘At a time of growing complexity of pressing public policy problems, the authors in this book masterfully examine collaboration as a way to address those problems. The balanced and thoughtful assessments of the many facets of collaboration open doors to greater understanding concerning the what, how, and why behind the decision to collaborate. The new ideas presented here – from macro network analyses to micro examinations of how to collaborate – are a breath of fresh air. This is a “must read” for anyone interested in collaboration as a management, leadership, or policy strategy.’
– Rosemary O'Leary, University of Kansas School of Public Affairs, US
