Scale economies in local public administration.

Local Government Studies, 42(3), 2016(Jun): p.441-463.

A renewed interest in decentralisation has profoundly

affected local public governance around the world. Faced

with an increasing number of tasks, Dutch municipalities

have recently sought physical centralisation, merging

into larger jurisdictions in order to target new policy

areas more effectively and cost efficiently. Is such a

policy of physical centralisation wise? We study

economies of scale in local public administration, and

find- given transfer payments from central government and

current cooperation between municipalities and after

controlling for geographical, demographic and

socioeconomic variables-substantial unused scale

economies of 17% for the average municipality. Between

2005 and 2014 the optimum size of municipalities

increases from around 49,000 to 66,260 inhabitants,

pointing at an increased importance of fixed costs

relative to variable costs in local public

administration. - Reproduced.

Designing resilient institutions for transboundary crisis

management: a time for public administration.

Public Administration, 94(2), 2016(Jun): p.289-298.

Crises and disasters feature high on political and public

agendas around the world. Practitioners wrestle with the

challenge to provide protection while maintaining

legitimacy. They pine for insights that lie at the heart

of public administration: designing effective

institutions and preserving transparency; enabling and

empowering citizens without undermining a coordinated

response; balancing long-term risks against short-term

needs; bridging the divide between theory and practice,

and between the public and private sectors. But in the

debates about designing institutions that protect against

transboundary threats and critical infrastructure

failures, the public administration community is

strangely absent. It has parked itself on the sideline,

concerning itself with the routine processes of

governance. In this article, we argue that the time has

come for public administration scholars to incorporate

crisis and disaster management into the main research

agendas of the field. - Reproduced.

Forgoing new public management and adopting post-new

public management principles: the on-going civil service

reform in Israel.

Public Administration and development, 36(1), 2016(Feb):


Since the 1980s, New Public Management (NPM) and post-NPM

reforms have dominated attempts to improve public

administration. The literature suggests several reasons

for the latter approach. However, these explanations seem

to be less relevant to the ongoing civil service reforms

in Israel. The Israeli experience is an example where NPM

reforms did not occur, but post-NPM reforms were adopted

enthusiastically decades later. Our findings demonstrate

how under the structural conditions of both non-

governability and bureaucratic centralization, post-NPM

reforms may provide an attractive layering strategy,

offering the option of changing certain features of the

system without requiring a drastic, comprehensive

overhaul of it. Once Israeli decision makers decided that

there was a real public demand for reform, and long-term

learning and diffusion processes convinced them that

change was needed, the characteristics of the post-NPM

approach made it much easier politically for them to

Resilience thinking: lessons for public administration.

Public Administration, 94(2), 2016(Jun): p.364-380.

The notion of resilience is rapidly gaining influence in

public administration practice and research, but a more

comprehensive resilience research agenda in public

administration is yet to emerge. This article aims to

clarify how experiences and potential contributions from

social-ecological resilience research can inform

resilience studies in public administration. By

contrasting key components of the resilience paradigm and

its policy prescriptions with established findings from

public administration research, a set of key shortcomings

of social-ecological resilience thinking are identified:

(1) deterministic systems models; (2) simplified accounts

of politics and policy; and (3) a lack of systematic and

generalizable empirical studies. To avoid these

shortcomings, it is suggested that public administration

resilience studies should explore multiple and competing

models for how resilience can be generated; analyse trade

offs between resilience and other values of public

administration; avoid systems theoretical resilience

models; and apply the notion of resilience in areas

beyond crisis management.

Public value management: a case in disability sector

reform in Western Australia.

Australian Journal of Public Administration, 75(2), 2016

(Jun): p.176-190.

This paper contributes to the study of public value

management (PVM). PVM is distinguished from other

approaches to public administration in its focus on

establishing community networks and collaborative

capacity building for the creation of public value. We

explore PVM through a case study of a public-community

sector partnership strategy called the positive behaviour

framework (PBF), a state government initiative designed

to transform services for people with disabilities. The

development and implementation of the PBF is analysed via

a transitional change or 'sector awareness' model. Each

phase of the model is illustrated through 'positive

stories' that depict key moments in the change process

and in the activities that public sector managers

employed to raise awareness, build capacity, and promote

collaboration. We discuss the implications of the study

for disability sector change management and for the

further study of the PVM approach to public sector

The communicative policy maker revisited: public

administration in a twenty-first century cultural-choice


Local Government Studies, 42(4), 2016(Aug): p.527-535.

In recent years, public administration thinking shifts

the focus from the internal public organisation behaviour

towards cross-boundary operation that is, operation

across governments and sectors. Public bureaucrats become

agents in a multiple-interest political environment

within which not only technical management issues are

discussed, but also dynamic public values are shaped

through a dialogical process. In a cultural choice

framework, governments operate different service

portfolios and the source of allocation problems occurs

due to interdependencies between these functions and

variation in public preferences. Beyond service

production costs, there exist variable characteristics,

such as citizen interest, market competition, and

managerial structure and operating behaviour in the

aggregate responsibilities governments take. Progressive

public administrators need to respond to a threefold

challenge: The global versus local challenge to define

cultural variability; the leadership challenge to

interact with citizens; and the cross-boundary challenge

to develop a collaborative rather than a competitive

Governance and economy in Asia and the United States:

institutions, instruments and reform.

Asia Pacific Journal of Public Administration, 38(1),

2016(Mar): p.7-23.

Effective governance involving the use of various

institutions and instruments is very important for

economic development. While many states fail to achieve

even the minimal features of effective governance, state

capitalism has proven to be a successful model

economically. The problem is that state capitalism is

frequently associated with authoritarian and corrupt

regimes. Over time, such regimes limit economic

efficiency, ignore the environment, and under-invest in

social and health services. In the West and some Asian

countries, these conditions have led to substantial

reform in democratic governance. Singapore and possibly

the People's Republic of China offer alternative models

of reform, reducing corruption and somewhat liberalising

their economies in the absence of well-developed

democratic governance. – Reproduced.

Planning in England: new public management, network

governance or post-democracy?

International Review of Administrative Sciences, 82(2),

2016(Jun): p.354-372.

Three frameworks-New Public Management, Network

Governance and Post-Democracy-are applied to identify and

explain the direction of institutional travel in the

field of land-use planning in England. These frameworks

are used to assess the extent to which land-use planning

has been centralized or decentralized over the last 20

years. The last Labour government (1997û2010) is

contrasted with the Conservative-led Coalition government

(2010û2015). Labour introduced planning policies and an

underpinning regional administrative machinery that the

latter has replaced with a 'localist' planning system and

sub-regional Local Enterprise Partnerships. The article

concludes that both Labour and the Conservative-led

Coalition embarked on policies that involved increased

centralization, but that the centralization took

different forms, though both parties denied sub-state

institutions the political or other resources to

challenge the central government in Westminster. -

The state and public administration: have instruments of

governance outrun governments? introductory perspectives


Asia Pacific Journal of Public Administration, 38(1),

2016(Mar): p.1-6.

These introductory perspectives set the scene for this

Special Issue (II) by echoing comments made in the

introduction to Special Issue (I) in December 2015. Three

critical questions are addressed: What is the role of the

state in different countries with different histories and

capabilities? Does it make a difference what the form of

the state is and how well articulated the instruments of

governance are in delivering effective public goods and

services? Have instruments of governance outrun

governments? The latter is the overall theme of the

Special Issues. The three complement the questions which

are posed at the outset of Special Issue (I) and stated

again in this discussion.

Alignments of instruments and action in governance: a

synthesis - revisited and extended.

Asia Pacific Journal of Public Administration, 38(1),

2016(Mar): p.60-73.

This synthesis concludes this Special Issue (II) by

revisiting and extending the synthesis which concluded

Special Issue (I) in December 2015. The focus is again on

instrument-action alignments in governance in terms of

their nature, pervasiveness and warranting. Of particular

interest are inherent challenges of diversity,

interconnection and responsibility which require

appreciative, integrative and legitimation capacities.

These challenges and capacities, involving their form,

significance and intertwining, are central to the

thematic interests and concerns of the Special Issues. -

The nature and incidence of workgroup innovation in the

Australian public sector: evidence from the Australian

2011 state of the service survey.

Australian Journal of Public Administration, 75(2), 2016

(Jun): p.201-221.

Using data from a nationally representative survey of all

Australian Government employees, we explore the nature of

innovation implemented at the workgroup level and assess

the multi-dimensionality of the workgroup's most

significant innovation (MSI). Of the 10222 survey

respondents, 48% reported at least one innovation

implemented by their workgroup, with an innovation more

commonly reported with an increase in the respondent's

age, seniority, and service experience; among men and

university graduates. The results reveal that 54% of the

reported MSIs incorporate between two and five dimensions

of innovation types (policy, service, service delivery,

administrative/organizational, and conceptual), and most

of these dimensions reinforce each other. Different

dimensions of the MSI draw on different sources of ideas

(with senior leaders having the broadest impact), face

different 'revealed' barriers, require different levels

of workplace creativity, and produce different beneficial

effects. Our findings help strengthen an understanding of

the influencing factors and the effects of multi-

dimensional public sector innovations.

The right to public services delivery in India: a

paradigm shift for good governance .

Indian Journal of Public Administration, 62(2), 2016(Apr-

Jun): p.309-323.

The emphasis of United Nations' Millennium Development

Goals is on sharpening the service delivery functions of

state. A gradual paradigm shift in the recent years has

brought the quality of public service delivery and

delivery mechanisms as touchstone of governance. In

contrast to its traditional role of a ruling and

controlling establishment, the shift is clearly towards

the citizen-centricity of governance. All over the world,

this centricity is the prime mover of administrative and

governance reforms. The declaration and adoption of

Citizen Charter or Client Charter was a precursor to a

better defined and rights-based approach. An

acknowledgment of citizens' aspirations and entitlements

is the key observable aspect in the present quest for

honing the quality of governance by way of upholding

citizens' right, inter alia, to express their choice,

right to be heard, to be consulted and to get information

about public services and an equal or equitable access to

these services. The recognition of the citizens' right to

public services through legislation is an important

landmark in India's pursuit of governance reforms and

optimum utilisation of public resources. This article

traces the stages in evolution of this paradigm shift in

the state policy and discusses the changed role for

political executive, bureaucracy and other stakeholders

in the obtaining of service delivery scenario. -
