Public Collaboration in Maine: When and Why It Works

Government by itself cannot address all complex public policy issues. The authors of this 2010 article in the Maine Policy Review write that “public collabo­ration” can alter the discourse on divisive local, regional, and state issues. Public collaboration is a process in which people from multiple sectors (government, business, nonprofit, civic, and tribal) work together to find solutions to problems that no single sector is able to resolve on its own. The authors describe the common features of effective public collaboration and provide detailed case studies and analysis of five recent examples of public collaboration in Maine.

Article authors are Diane Kenty of the Office of Court Alternative Dispute Resolution for the State of Maine, and Ann R. Gosline and
Jonathan W. Reitman of Gosline and Reitman.
