Research in public policy analysis and management; v.21


Groeneveld and Van de Walle (public administration, Erasmus U. Rotterdam, the Netherlands) compile 13 chapters by a group of European and Chinese government, political science, public administration, public policy, and management scholars who attended a conference of the International Public Management Network held at Erasmus U. Rotterdam in June 2010. Specially commissioned pieces and chapters based on papers from the conference are included. They explore new public management steering concepts and instruments that have emerged after New Public Management (NPM) and new organizational mechanisms, arrangements, and ideas for dealing with the fragmentation caused by NPM. These include whole of government, collaborative governance, networks, and outcome steering, with case studies of the obesity epidemic in the UK, urban regeneration projects in China, and welfare services. There is no index. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution.
