Deena White, Université de Montréal

Deena White is a full professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Montreal. She specializes in political sociology, and more specifically, social policy implementation, as seen through the challenges of civil society groups involved in implementation. She has critically studied new forms of governance such as service partnerships and networks, their impact on the organization and activities of civil societies, and the ways in which civil society groups organize themselves to maintain their autonomy and critical distance, even while harnessed to government programs.
