New public governance is a new paradigm including a set of doctrines and approaches aimed at promoting “common good” by incorporating “public values” across the political system. It attempts to theorize about complex “decision making” spaces and enlarged “gaps” between formalized, hierarchical “tiers” of regulatory government jurisdictions and informal, unregulated connections, linkages, and inter-relationships. The paradigm facilitates an understanding of inter-connections, inter-dependencies, interactions between complex issues and across multiple boundaries, to reach agreement between diverse stakeholders influencing what constitutes “public value.”
