Collaborative public policies spawned in the 2000s as an attempt to bring web 2.0 ways onto the public sector. Early experiments have been generally successful, but now some of the longest-running projects are faced with a fundamental tension between top-down directionality as implied by government action and the emergent character of networked social dynamics. This has very serious consequences on concepts like accountability and universality, and may be incompatible with organizing public institutions as Weberian bureaucracies. Complexity sciences supply a useful framework to think about these issues, though we still lack a proper theory of emergence in the social world.
