Governance Theory als fortentwickelte Steuerungstheorie?


  • Mayntz, Renate


Gegenstand dieses Papiers ist die Entwicklung des mit dem Leitbegriff Governance verbundenen analytischen Ansatzes und sein Zusammenhang mit dem steuerungstheoretischen Paradigma. Governance ist, so wird argumentiert, keine einfache Weiterentwicklung von Steuerung, sondern lenkt die Aufmerksamkeit auf andere Aspekte der politischen Wirklichkeit. Während die Steuerungstheorie einem akteurzentrierten Ansatz folgt, ist die sich entwickelnde Governance-Theorie institutionalistisch und fragt nach der Beschaffenheit von Regelungsstrukturen, in denen öffentliche und private, hierarchische und netzwerkartige Formen der Regelung zusammenwirken.
