Includes bibliographical references (p. 17-20) November 2006 This paper is developed from a presentation at a symposium, `Governments and communities in partnership : the next steps', organised by the Brotherhood of St Laurence and the Centre for Public Policy, University of Melbourne, in May 2005.

Tim Reddel argues that contemporary governance of social policies is characterised by shifting risks and responsibilities between sectors and interests and by a dominant neo-liberal agenda. He uses empirical research from place-based policy making and community strengthening initiatives in Queensland, together with a historical policy scan, to examine the policy trends. The paper highlights the limited conceptual and policy thinking underpinning the relationship between government and society, and questions the assumption that networks and partnerships are inherently democratic and participatory.
