Breakout 3A: Governing Into the Future Track; Notions of 'Ownership'

The concept of 'owners' takes a central place within the Policy Governance system. However, the concept is not without challenges. For some communities, the concept has negative connotations, that prevent them from embracing the concept — even Policy Governance as a whole. If we want Policy Governance to be a system that is truly inclusive, we might try to find conceptualizations of the 'ownership' concept that are acceptable to everyone.
In this session, we would like to discuss several approaches to this topic, based on a recent article that we co-authored. We would like to engage in small groups discussions, to share experiences and ideas on how alternatives for the word 'ownership' might work, without compromising the integrity of the Policy Governance concept of ownership or system.
