The primary purpose of this series is to provide an extended space for researchers and practitioners to reflect upon what they see as the emerging and potential trends in public sector management and to anticipate the directions they may take. We wish to focus upon those informed yet tentative or speculative discussions which permeate both worlds. We recognise that received ideas of what constitutes legitimate areas of public policy and especially public management or public administration have been called into question by the financial and banking crises of 2008. In addition, the consequential political challenges to governments to provide political leadership and to be held accountable challenge particular concepts of neutral public managers acting in the interests of civil society. This series actively invites those who are both engaged with the practice of public management (in all its forms) and those who are active researchers to share their ideas, reflections and informed thinking with a wider readership.
Coverage includes (but is not limited to)
Public Sector Management Education; Relationships between Higher Education Institutions and the Public Sector; Public Sector Management and Leadership; Strategic Management; Public Sector Agencies and Civil Society; Accountability and Governance
