About this item

Based on the Coordinating for Cohesion in the Public Sector of the Future (COCOPS) Top Executive Survey of 6,701 top public sector executives in 17 European countries, this volume examines their views on the state of public administration and administrative reform and its effects on performance, focusing on the impact of New Public Management-style reforms in relation to cohesion, and emerging reform approaches, particularly those after the 2008 financial crisis. Organized by region and contributed by public administration scholars from these countries, the 24 chapters address recent reforms and reform trends in Austria, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, the UK, Italy, Portugal, and Spain, and comparisons to other countries. Other chapters detail the values, attitudes, and motivations of top public sector executives, and challenges and outcomes of public administration reforms: assessment of the reform process and how management tools and instruments are used, the effects of the fiscal crisis, how recent reform initiatives have tried to improve coordination in public administration, and reform outcomes.
