By HelenSullivan and Chris SkelcherCollaboration between governments, business, and voluntary and community sectors is now central to the way public policy is made, managed and delivered. This book provides the first comprehensive and authoritative account of the theory, policy and practice of collaboration. Written by two leading authorities in the field the book explores the experience of collaboration in regeneration, health and other policy sectors, and assesses the consequences of the emergence of public-private partnerships contrasting the UK experience to that elsewhere in the world. The content includes: the collaborative agenda, collaboration on cross-cutting issues, collaboration across sectors, building capacity for collaboration and evaluating outcomes.
