Building a Collaborative Governance Process: An Analysis from an Actor-Network Theory Perspective
Keywords:Collaborative Governance, Cartography of Controversies, ANT
Collaborative Governance is a governmental arrangement that involves interested parties for collective decision-making aimed at consensus, with the objective of implementing a Public Policy. Contemporary problems, often complex, require the implementation of structures aimed at cooperation so that there is the engagement of various actors for transparent and consistent decision-making. This theoretical-empirical research presents the results of an investigation using as an assumption the Actor-Network Theory (ANT) aiming to identify the human and non-human actors involved in a Collaborative Governance Process from the cartography of controversies. The qualitative research was characterized as a case study and was carried out through document analysis. As a result, it was possible to identify that collaborative network require interaction, movement, and process, with the active participation of the different actors involved.
