Cross-sector partnerships, a distinct type of collaborative governance, have in recent years attracted increasing attention from governments, civil society organizations, foundations, philanthropists, and business organizations. Such partnerships are perceived as an essential and desirable strategy for coping with complex public challenges and for promoting innovative social programs. This chapter examines, from the perspective of civil society, the roles played by civil society organizations in cross-sector partnerships and the relationships that are formed between these organizations and government within the framework of cross-sector partnerships. It will present and discuss research findings regarding the activities of civil society organizations in cross-sector partnerships conducted in Israel in recent years.
