This chapter addresses some of the sorts of ‘new’ actors, both organisations and people, involved in the processes of new governance and the relationships these have to the state and its project of self–transformation and the reform of the overall institutional architecture of the state and its scales of operation – what Castells calls ‘reprogramming’. It will focus specifically on three new policy organisations that have all been endorsed and/or funded by the Coalition government to grow and develop and take on public sector responsibilities and are all involved in the new Coalition policy developments. It will look at the ‘vision’, ‘interests’ and relationships of these organisations and will discuss the hybridities, blurrings and crossings that are involved both in their roles and relationships with government and in the participation(s) of key actors.

Keywords:   Policy actors, the state, hybridity, reprogramming
