The forms and processes of this participation provided for the creation of new organizational entities that are usually described with the concept of network. Given the centrality of the networks form of government in this "enlarged" public sphere, the of concepts Governance and Network Governance tend to coincide. The aim of this paper is to discuss the forms and processes that characterize the "government by networks", drawing on two theoretical sources, Social Network Analysis and symbolic interactionism.
