  3. Leadership and Public Sector Reform in Asia

    • Ebog

    Leadership and Public Sector Reform in Asia

    2018
    First edition
    Summary: "Present day knowledge about public sector reforms in Asia is quite scattered and seldom focuses on the challenges of leadership. This edited collection seeks to address this issue by presenting country cases that reflect the great diversity of the region. Home to roughly one-third of the world's population, Asia-Pacific governments typically play leading roles in social and economic development, yet by measures of expenditures or civil servants per capita, most are among the smaller ones in the world. These regimes include democracies, one-party states and unstable systems; there is a broad range of cultural legacies including Confucian, Buddhist, and Western, and vastly different levels of economic development; the region includes some of the very least corrupt countries and those with high corruption levels; it includes the world's most populous country, as well as some of the smallest. Public sector reforms are very relevant to these countries and their leaders. In Asia, a strong government is invaluable and public sector reforms are relevant to helping modern states meet their goals and performance. This collection explores what is known about these reforms with an eye towards helping leaders responsible for reforms. Clearly, there is very large variation; some Asia-Pacific countries are leading in public sector reforms, while others are not, and this book also seeks to further our understanding what leaders might need to do to be successful."

  7. Comparative public management : why national, environmental, and organizational context matters

    • Ebog

    Comparative public management : why national, environmental, and organizational context matters

    2017
    Summary: The field of public management has become increasingly international, but research and policy recommendations that work for one country often do not work in another. Why, for example, is managerial networking important in the United States, moderately effective in the United Kingdom, and of little consequence in the Netherlands? This text argues that scholars must find a better way to account for political, environmental, and organizational contexts to build a more general model of public management. The volume editors propose a framework where context influences the types of managerial actions that can be used effectively in public organizations. After introducing this framework, the book offers seven empirical chapters - cases from seven countries and a range of policy areas (health, education, taxation, and local governance) - showing how management affects performance in different contexts. Following these empirical tests, the book examines themes that emerge across cases and seeks to set an agenda for continued research

  9. Bureaucracy in America : the administrative state's challenge to constitutional government

    • Ebog

    Bureaucracy in America : the administrative state's challenge to constitutional government

    2017
    Summary: "The rise of the administrative state is the most significant political development in American politics over the past century. While our Constitution separates powers into three branches, and requires that the laws are made by elected representatives in the Congress, today most policies are made by unelected officials in agencies where legislative, executive, and judicial powers are combined. This threatens constitutionalism and the rule of law. This book examines the history of administrative power in America and argues that modern administrative law has failed to protect the principles of American constitutionalism as effectively as earlier approaches to regulation and administration"--Publisher's website
