This article answers the question of why interlocal partnerships are seen as a viable route to effective governance among local elites in Norway. It shows that partnerships are also based on a more general perception of increased decision-making power, specifically in relation to forces exogenous to the regional context in which such co-operation is forged. It argues that demography, perceptions of local governance and ideology matter when elites assess the importance of interlocal partnerships
