Chapter 15: From collaborative responsiveness to collaborative empowerment
This chapter examines collaborative governance mechanisms that perpetuate societal imbalances and particularly the position of service recipients as passive clients. A collaborative empowerment framework, in contrast to a collaborative responsiveness framework, reduces organizational and collective constraints on individuals by emphasizing values and processes of equal voice, deliberation, and political education. Foundations of such a framework are investigated and elucidated through discussion of experiences in the American efforts to fight poverty.
