Abstract

Authors writing on the subject of governance have begun to acknowledge its new buzzword status. However, an old adage reminds us that if a concept is everything it is nothing (see also Frederickson 2005: 285). Frederickson (2005) asks what has become of public administration in recent years when every area of the field seems to have been subsumed under the broad umbrella of governance.1 This chapter seeks to discuss the value of trust in governance or governance networks. But, before we do so, we must first assess the meaning of governance.
