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.

This book provides unique insights into the role of policy capacity in policymaking and policy change, as it is being uncovered at the research frontier in contemporary policy studies. The book is structured into a series of sections on policy capacity in theory and practice, each focusing on a specific aspect of policy capacity and its influence on policy formulation, decision-making, implementation and evaluation. In addition to making a significant contribution to the body of literature on the theoretical approaches to researching the role of capacity in policymaking, it also provides practical examples of the application of these approaches through a variety of national and sectoral case studies. Including contributions from authors working in a wide variety of disciplines, the book demonstrates, across the various topics investigated, many commonalities and consistencies in relation to the study of policy capacity and policy-making. This work has interdisciplinary appeal and will engage scholars in fields ranging from geography to communications, health, social work and political science, amongst others with an interest in public policy.

This book is based on a unique data set and assesses in comparative terms the public management reforms in the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden. Based on the assessments of administrative executives, the book compares the Nordic countries with the Anglo-Saxon, the Germanic, the Napoleonic and the East European group of countries. The book addresses the following questions: What reform trends are relevant in the public administrations of the Nordic countries? What institutional features characterize the state authorities in these countries? What characterizes the role identity, self-understanding, dominant values, and motivation of administrative executive in the Nordic countries? What characterizes reform processes, trends and content, what is the relevance of different types of management instruments, and what are their perceived effects and the perceived performance of the public administration? The book also examines how the different Nordic countries dealt with the financial crisis of 2008, and how the differences and similarities in their approaches can be explained.

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.
