Valitsetuse küsimused on küll midagi sellist, mis minuni jõudvas eestikeelses kõnepruugis organisatsioonides on hästi varjatud. Mitte ainult retoorika-terminoloogia tasandil, vaid ka mõtteviisina.

Siinviidatu leidis oma koha põhjustel, et tegeleb avaliku juhtimise küsimusega ja esitab valitsetuse (governance) põhimõtete olulisust avalikus juhtimises ning teeb seda erakordselt olulise valdkonna näitel.

Kontekstiks:

Ensuring adequate nutrition for children in low‐ and middle‐income countries (LMICs) where the state is weak is a problem that often requires collaborative and coordinated effort of a network of agencies and actors. Around the world, approximately 3.1 million children die from undernutrition each year and hunger and undernutrition contribute to more than half of child deaths globally (UNICEF, 2018).

Valitsetus avalikus juhtimises:

Health policy and development scholars argue that the coordination of and cooperation of multiple actors within a network is the key to success of nutrition interventions (see, e.g., Kennedy et al., 2016; Nisbett et al., 2014). In public administration, this process is generally described as governance. […] Studies of governance in public administration developed from the recognition that to realize policy goals, governments now work with and through networks of autonomous interdependent actors (Kooiman, 1993; O’Toole, 1997). These networks cannot be coordinated through the traditional command and control instruments of government due to interdependences and differing levels of commitment, motivation, resources, and knowledge on part of each actor (see Mayntz, 1993).

Metavalitsetus:

An effective framework for understanding metagovernance was developed by Sørensen (2006) who argued that metagovernance involved four key approaches (1) The hands‐off framing of selfgovernance, (2) Hands‐off storytelling, (3) Hands‐on support and facilitation, and (4) Hands‐on participation.

Pealtnäha pisiasjad ei ole sageli pisiasjad, vaid võivad osutuda tõhusaks võimumehhanismiks:

. However, the World Bank plays a significant role in supporting the CLM financially and this support takes the form of loans rather than grants. This gives the World Bank the ability to attach conditions and exercise influence.

Lugemishuvi suurendamiseks:

For this reason, we argue that a metagovernor, particularly when that metagovernor is the state, should metagovern, to the extent possible. Collaborative governance arrangements are often employed precisely because the state is weak and unable to fulfill its mandate on its own.
