Challenging governance theory: From networks to hegemony

Jonathan S. Davies


This book develops a Gramscian account of contemporary governance. It critiques the fashionable view that there has been a shift from hierarchy to networks, arguing instead that the ideology of network governance is part of the neoliberal hegemonic project. However, there are major barriers to accomplishing this project.

Keywords: Gramscian account, hierarchy, governance, networks, network governance
