State governance implies handling major societal challenges where expectations for effective solutions are conflicting with the willingness to create sufficient capacity, resulting in weakening of effectiveness and trust. The Global Financial Crises triggered austerity programmes which added to the challenges.
For these reasons governments need to be a significant part of the ‘solution’, and therefore they should not be part of the problem. This requires not just a reform culture, but also a governance capacity which is correlated with the current and future problems. This should result in a complex governance system which is responsible and accountable. This process is on its way within the OECD. There are major shifts happening, however, major governance deficits are still on our agenda. This should guide our agenda for public governance research and practice.
