The mandate of the Participatory Governance Initiative at Arizona State University is to promote excellence, collaboration, and innovation in participatory governance research and practice. The Participatory Governance Initiative is a university-wide interdisciplinary space that aims at bringing together academics, students, elected and non-elected government officials, community members and practitioners interested in the theory and practice of participatory governance. Special attention is paid to the examination of emerging trends and innovative experiments around the world that are relevant to the realities of governance and public engagement in the 21st century.
The Participatory Governance Initiative is hosted by the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University, in the College of Public Programs (UCENT Building, 411 N. Central Ave, Phoenix, AZ).
The Participatory Governance Initiative is devoted to undertake teaching, capacity building, research and dissemination activities aimed at the study and promotion of participatory democracy initiatives, particularly at the municipal level of government.
