In this context, where no institution appears able to control the

others, power is pulverized among amultitude of subjects (the State,

non-state actors, private actors, both profit and non-profit entities)

giving rise to phenomena of the progressive de-personalization of

forms of governing, a blurring between public and private sectors,

and the building of self-organizing networks (Stoke, 1998). Here

governing and government are conceptually separated and tend to

have a per se existence in the theoretical framework. In particular,

the concept of governance seems even more capable of interpreting

the novelties of this paradigm change in political theory.
