Abstract

Examines the much increased use of the term 'partnership' in recent years and will argue that, however imprecise its application, it nonetheless has played a central role in the reshaping of public policy under New Labour. Second, linking into the agenda that practice should be evidence based, the paper will survey research on the actual outcomes of joint working across agencies. Third, the paper will examine the politics of managing and delivering joint working in two areas: the use of shared assessment tools and joint structures of organisation.
