Practices of governance are central to our perspective. One of our theoretical thinkers, John Dewey, viewed human action as habitual: “Habits constantly adapt the environment, including the social environment, to our needs, or accommodate our needs to the demands of the environment”. Habits refer to dispositions and skills of individuals and for their resulting actions (Cohen 2007, 779). At the collective level, Dewey used the term “customs” for habitual human actions. Following this logic, framing governance as grounded in habits and customs, it becomes much more of an historical being (Cohen 2007, 777).
