A governance failure refers to any failures of governance or ineffectiveness of governance processes.[1]

General[edit]

Jessop argues for conceiving governance as a provider of flexibility for decision-making structures opposed to rigid state bureaucracy or market laws. From this approach failures would equate to failures of the governance structure.[1] According to him new constellations of governance may compensate for state failure.[2]

Peters and Pierre state that it is the continuous task of government to adapt to growing complexity.[2]

Dixon and Dogan write that constructive governance discourses are creative opportunities for people with disparate governance perspectives to find solutions to threatening governance failure.[3]

Policy failure[edit]

Governance failure may also refer to what can also be described as policy failures − the effectiveness, efficiency, and resilience of specific policies.[1] A frequently mentioned example of a policy failure is the War on Drugs.[4][5][6][7][8]
