This chapter synthesizes our prior work that examines the role of governance in creating place-specific advantages. We define governance as the interactive process of building consensus to solve a collective problem. Thus, governance creates social norms and institutions that may responsibly advance place-specific advantage. Through this process, conditions are created that generate interest and expertise around a local industry, putting the “secrets” of the industry into the air of public conversation.
