Partnership is a framework for relations between sectors in society aimed at achieving their common goal. Partnership is based on the assumption that it is beneficial for the government to cooperate with employers, employees and NGOs in the decision making process.
Partnership is based on the following principles:
A continuous discourse – Partnership is based on a continuous discourse and not individual instances of cooperation.
The involvement of the key players – The key players in the public sphere, the government, representatives of employers associations, representatives of trade unions and representatives of NGOs, participate on a regular basis.
A Common Vision – During the discourse the players don't represent their own sectarian interests and act together to achieve their common interest.
Long term – The discourse focuses on strategic issues with long term effects.
The exchange of information – As part of the process the players exchange data and information.
Cooperative learning – The players analyze policy alternatives and their systematic effects together.
Structure – The 'Central Mind' which maintains a systematic understanding of the policy environment from the Prime Minister's perspective, leads the discourse between sectors.
