The Theory of Multi-level Governance

This chapter analyzes the third axis, which describes the challenges to the exclusionary state coming from civil society mobilization. The growing involvement of civil society organizations in authoritative decision‐making is a phenomenon that takes place both within and across countries. The borders of the national state are frequently pierced and mobilization occurs increasingly at the transnational level. Forms of participated governance can be found at all governmental levels as well as across levels. Public interests are promoted by transnational social movements and advocacy coalitions.

Keywords:   state‐society, transnational mobilization, civil society organization, public interests
