Jörn Ege untersucht die Autonomie der Sekretariate von internationalen Regierungsorganisationen (IOs) aus einer vergleichenden Perspektive. Mit Fokus auf die internen Strukturen, Kompetenzen und Ressourcen dieser „internationalen Bürokratien“ unterzieht er die Verwaltungsautonomie in 16 IOs einer vergleichenden Untersuchung. Der Autor macht die wesentlichen Unterschiede in der Verwaltungsautonomie sichtbar und kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass autonome Verwaltungen einer stärkeren politischen Kontrolle unterliegen als Verwaltungen mit geringer Autonomie. Die Identifikation bürokratischer Einflusspotenziale zeigt schließlich wichtige Anknüpfungspunkte für Fragen der Legitimität und Effektivität von Verwalten und Regieren jenseits des Nationalstaates auf.

Sharpening The Sword Of State

Sharpening the Sword of State explores the various ways in which 10 jurisdictions in the Asia-Pacific enhance their administrative capabilities through training and executive development. It traces how modern governments across this region look to develop their public services and public sector organisations in the face of rapid global change. For many governments there is a delicate balance between the public interest in promoting change and capacity enhancement across the public service, and the temptation to micro-manage agencies and be complacent about challenging the status quo. There is a recognition in the countries studied that training and executive development is a crucial investment in human capital but is also couched in a much wider context of public service recruitment, patterns of entry and retention, promotion, executive appointment and career development. This empirical volume, authored by academics and practitioners, is one of the first to chart these comparative differences and provide fresh perspectives to enable learning from international experiences

Public management stands at the unique intersection of theory and practice. It seeks to help scholars frame questions that will improve their understanding of how policy ideas become transformed into practice and to help government managers see past the narrow issues on their desks to the broader implications of their work. In The State of Public Management, Donald F. Kettl and H. Brinton Milward bring together contributors who focus on the interdisciplinary nature of public management. Scholars from the social sciences--economics, political science, sociology, and psychology--examine what traditional disciplines bring to the debate. Other analysts build on this foundation to probe the theoretical bases of and practical solutions for public management.
