The focus of this course is twofold: first, how government and business influence one another and secondly, why collaboration is a growing reality enjoining public sector and private sector organizations and the implications for each sector and society as a whole. The course aims to understand the fundamental difference between the public interest and the private interest and how such differences are sorted out through contemporary governance systems. While the emphasis will be on the Canadian environment, a comparative perspective will also be used in light of many issues that are increasingly transnational in scope.
