The article is organized around three axes. First, the crisis of the traditional government model and its progressive theoretical review is considered, which results in certain scholar consensus around the conception of governance or relational government. The second axis of this work is to think about the participative dimension of the new government model. The third part is made up by reflections on the proximity dimension-strengthening local spaces of government and the articulation of multilevel networks with strong components of municipal leadership.
