Collaborative Governance in the Development of Silk Commodities in South Sulawesi


This study departs from the fact that the silk sector in South Sulawesi is currently experiencing a decline, even though it is closely attached to the culture of the people of South Sulawesi and has broad and varied potential benefits. Silk has also become a priority sector in the provincial government’s development planning. In recent years, collaborative governance has become a concept that has been in great demand by academics. Collaborative governance has emerged to respond to implementation failures, high costs, and the politicization of public sector regulations. The focus is on each stage of public policy. It is a new paradigm to understand the existence of multiple stakeholders in public affairs. This study aimed to explain collaborative governance in the development of silk commodities in South Sulawesi, and case studies were used to analyze such models. I used a post-positivist research paradigm with qualitative methods. The government’s efforts to develop the silk commodity in South Sulawesi by implementing a collaborative governance process have shown results that have not been maximized in the upstream, manufacturing, and downstream sectors, which are still dominated by entrepreneurs. Therefore, the government’s role is needed to formulate policies that are more effective and capable of developing good collaboration with the public sector and society.
