A new age of uncertainty

“A new age of uncertainty,” coauthored with David Coen of University College London, is now available online.  This is an introduction to a special issue of Governance that has just been published (January 2012).  Excerpt: “After a period typified by delegation and technocratic decisionmaking, we are entering a new phase of governance that is distinguished by the reconcentration of authority, intensified conflict over the ends and means of governmental action, and volatility in policy outputs. The critical point today is not that one paradigm has been replaced by another. Rather, it is that — for the time being — there is no dominant paradigm at all.”
