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.

Many changes are taking place in the public sector across Europe as emphasis is being placed on the efficient use of resources, the way that public organisations are managed and their relationship with clients and customers. Post-bureaucratic structures are being introduced and a more managerialist culture is being established. A new type of public servant is emerging - the public manager. This book consists of three theoretical chapters and nine case studies of public managers, which examine these changes amongst member states of the European Union. The concluding chapter identifies common trends and explains similarities and differences in terms of the constitutional, political, cultural and economic contexts.

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.
