Students will write a case report (6 page double-spaced page 2,000 words) report on an actual governance process or project of their choosing. This involves selecting a real world “governance challenge” from a country, city, community like those in the Emerson and Natabatchi volume or the Tam book. The case report will apply the framework from the Emerson and Nabatchi policy governance framework and/or the democratic governance framework of Tam to present the research. Your report examines a real-world governance experiment at either the local community scale or the national political scale. You can organize the information under the following sub-headings: Introduction (the governance challenge at issue and the case in focus) 1. Drivers of Governance (what are the background problems/conditions/triggers that motivate a governance approach?) 2. Governance Leadership (who takes the initiative and how do they define the shared mission and mobilize partners, what resources are made available, what are the goals of governance?) 3. Governance Dynamics (how is the process playing-out, what strategies, mechanisms, and projects are evident?) 4. Assessing Governance (have the partners and the process delivered collective results, are there failures or limitations?) Conclusion (what lessons can be drawn from your case about the prospects and problems of governance in the 21st century) See syllabus for sample topics: Sample Topics for Case Study Selection: Social Governance: Homelessness Neighbourhood Revitalization Immigrant Settlement Racial Relations Gender Identity, Expression, and Equity · Economic Governance: Community Economic Development Worker Cooperatives Technology Innovation Districts Participatory Budgeting Cross-border Collaboration · Environmental Governance: Ecosystem Protection Brownfield Remediation Resource Renewal Climate Change Collaboration Public Transit/Green Infrastructure · Democratic Governance: Civic Education Deliberative Democracy Restorative Justice Truth and Reconciliation Civic Renewal Programs
