Coordinating for Cohesion in the Public Sector of the Future

EGPA CfP on ‘coordination’

The EGPA Study Group on Governance of Public Sector Organisations has a call for the EGPA conference in Bergen (5-8 Sep) on ‘Reforms, accountability and cross-cutting coordinative arrangements’. Deadline for submissions will be 5 May 2012.

The EGPA Study Group on Governance of Public Sector Organizations studies aspects of public sector organizations. The focus is on organizations of different forms, ranging from semi-independent governmental units to different types of ‘agencies’, state-owned companies and government foundations as well as different forms of  inter-organizational arrangements.  Central issues under study are: the establishment, change and dissolution of these organizations; different characteristics of different forms of organizations; their design; governance, coordination, management and control; and their performance. Furthermore, these organizations interact with a complex (multi-level) network of actors, consisting of for example parliament, ministers and ministries, subnational and international government organizations, regulators, other agencies, interest groups, courts and civil society. The quality, frequency and type of interactions can be studied, as well as the consequences for all parties involved.
