Abstract:

Governance emerged as the latest style for management reform; the wave of governance initiatives is sweeping state administrations, corporate headquarters, and civil society organizations. In this paper, I comment on the historical process of institutionalization of governance and to reflect on the way this field defines the current mode of governmentality and tracks the process of global rationalization. I focus on three dimensions of the processes: (a) timing of institutionalization of governance, (b) carriers of the emerging notion and (c) the content of the new discourse that is contained in this new notion of governance. These issues are revealed through bibliographic and organizational analyses, highlighting governance in academic discourse (coding bibliographic sources) and transnational action (coding UIA directories). Based on these analyses, I argue that governance is a product of a world steeped with rationalization and with the primacy of individual actorhood. It is this cultural atmosphere which privileges notions that reflects rationalization and actorhood, which also leads to the translation of “management” into “governance.”
