Partnerships for Sustainability in Contemporary Global Governance investigates the goals, ideals, and realities of sustainability partnerships and offers a theoretical framework to help disentangle the multiple and interrelated pathways that shape their effectiveness.
CIES Co-director Professor Liliana Andonova, Moira V. Faul and CIES affiliated researcher Dario Piselli have co-edited a new book on Partnerships for Sustainability.
The interdisciplinary book offers new understandings of the pathways to partnership effectiveness and the conditions that shape their performance. Partnerships are pervasive in all aspects of research and policy-making for sustainability and are important governance instruments for provisioning public goods. While partnerships promise a great deal, there has been less clarity as to what they deliver.
This book develops a framework for partnership effectiveness that is applied into diverse empirical cases. "The broad range of crosscutting analyses suggest important practical implications for the design of new partnerships and the updating of existing initiatives."
