about this item

This book investigates why networks, some with joined-up governanceremits, appeared ineffective in handling neighbourhood unemployment even inperiods when the national unemployment levels dropped. It deploys amulti-theoretical and methodological framework to investigate this empiricalpuzzle, and to test and analyse the causal factors influencing networkoutcomes. Chapters examine network concepts, network theories, outcomeindicators, the historical infrastructure and management of unemploymentpolicy, and governing network trends in post-war urban regenerationinterventions. Comparative network case studies offer empirical evidence and ahigh degree of local variation. Mixed methods (qualitative and quantitativeapproaches), including social network analysis, uncover formal and informalnetworks, and eighty-six interviews in two English local authorities withpersistent unemployment, give voice to network practitioner experiences.Findings explain why sub-optimal network outcomes prevail and operationaldifficulties persist on the ground. Students and academics, professionals andactivists can use the results to challenge network governance theories and thepolicy status-quo.
