The line of research dedicated to schemes and governance is aimed at identifying existing networks of interagency cooperation, whether spontaneous or planned.

In our understanding, the exposed and overlapping structures must be accompanied by a constant increase, since the challenges to which they are subjected are also changing.

Therefore, research in this area is focused on the study of solidarity networks and formal cooperation networks, including the set of regulatory provisions that allow interaction, in terms of frequency, methods, actors involved.

In addition, the comparison and detection of good practices translate into an objective interest in informing which standards can be more or less efficient, in order to propose visible solutions to apparently invisible problems.

In this theme, there is a great opportunity for study and comparison between European and American governance frameworks and in between them, such as those associated with the Atlantic and NATO.
