Hybridity in the Governance and Delivery of Public Services
The concept of hybridity, although well developed in various research areas, is relatively new in the management field, where organisational hybridity refers to organisations that combine managerial features, value systems and institutional logics of different sectors (market, state, civil society). Hybrid organisations have traditionally been compared with private, public and non-profit ones, by considering goal ambiguity, governance, organisational structures, personnel and purchasing processes, and work-related attitudes and values. This research has led to substantial evidence on relevant differences between hybrid and other organisations. Hybridisation has also become a permanent feature in today's welfare system. New Public Management and welfare state reforms of the mid 1990s contributed to the emergence of hybrid organisations, with neo-institutional theory also attributed to this phenomenon. Considering the hybrid phenomenon as a whole, little is known about governance and controls, especially with regard to accountability mechanisms and issues such as the prevention of corruption. Even less is known when we consider the main variables of hybridity to be mixed ownership, competing institutional logics, multiplicity of funding arrangements, and public and private forms of financial and social control. This book seeks to answer the unsolved questions related to hybrid organisations. It does so by adopting a multifaceted approach along its ten chapters, which focus on different national contexts, including the UK, Italy, Australia, and Sweden, as well as global organisations. The authors consider policy sectors including humanitarian aid, local transport, healthcare, and welfare services.

Discovering American Regionalism: An Introduction to Regional Intergovernmental Organizations
Regions are difficult to govern - coordinating policies across local jurisdictional boundaries in the absence of a formal regional government gives rise to enormous challenges. Yet some degree of coordination is almost always essential for local governments to effectively fulfill their responsibilities to their citizens. State and local governments have, over time, awkwardly, and with much experimenting, developed common approaches to regional governance. In this revolutionary new book, authors David Miller and Jen Nelles offer a new way to conceptualize those common approaches: Regional Intergovernmental Organizations (RIGOs) that bring together local governments to coordinate policies across jurisdictional boundaries. RIGOs are not governments themselves, but as Miller and Nelles demonstrate, they do have a measure of political authority that allows them to quietly and sometimes almost invisibly work to further regional interests and mitigate cross-boundary irritations. Providing a new conceptual framework for understanding how regional decision-making has emerged in the U.S., this book will provoke a new and rich era of discussion about American regionalism in theory and practice. Discovering American Regionalism will be a future classic in the study of intergovernmental relations, regionalism, and cross-boundary collaboration.

The Axis Occupation of Europe Then and Now
Winston and Gail Ramsey This book focuses on the systems used by the Axis powers for the governance of the countries that they occupied during the Second World War. It would be easy to assume that the administration of each country was carried out on a somewhat ad hoc basis, but streams of detailed orders and decrees were enacted to cover all aspects of everyday life . . . from finance to crime. Dr Raphael Lemkin was a Polish emigre and the person who coined the term `genocide' during his study of international law concerning crimes against humanity which he began in 1933 - the year that the Nazis assumed power in Germany. Dr Lemkin's much-acclaimed work Axis Rule in Occupied Europe was published in 1944 and extracts from it now form the framework on which we have built this `then and now' coverage of the occupation of Czechoslovakia, Memel, Albania, Danzig, Poland, Denmark, Norway, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Monaco, the Channel Islands, Greece, Yugoslavia, the Baltic states, the Soviet Union, Romania, Italy and Hungary. Individual chapters also cover the most serious crimes committed by the occupier: the destruction of whole villages in Czechoslovakia, France, the Netherlands and Greece, and the genocidal acts carried out in Italy, Greece and Belgium, although nothing can equal the wholesale slaughter enacted in the Balkans and the USSR. It has been estimated that the Axis occupation of Europe cost between 20 and 25 million civilian lives, apart from the deaths of at least 16 million servicemen and women who paid the ultimate price in trying to put Europe back together again. It is a debt that can never be repaid. SIZE 12 x81/2 368 PAGES OVER 1,000 ILLUSTRATIONS ISBN 9 781870 067935 GBP39.95

The book examines how the recent digitalization has increased citizen expectations and why one-way communication leaves public sector organizations fragile. To explain how to make public sector communication antifragile, the authors map contributions from a wide variety of fields combined with illustrative examples from around the world. The authors propose a research-based framework of different intangible assets that can directly improve communication in the public sector.

Building Democracy and International Governance
Efforts by governments to promote sustained domestic economic development have been mixed. Success depends on many factors including location, geography, climate, external competition, human resources, natural resources, timing, political and governmental institutions, government capacity, implementation, leadership, values-and maybe luck. This complexity means that while development experts can often identify ingredients for success, few can prescribe the specific mix needed by a particular state to achieve sustained development over the long term. In Building Democracy and International Governance, author George M. Guess uses both case studies and careful data analysis to argue that federalist democracy may just be the most responsive, authoritative, and flexible system for nation building, and that there is value in confronting the challenges that lie in exporting federalist democracy abroad. Guess demonstrates the ways in which federation structures provide positive redundancy against failures, flexibility to change course and implement programs and policies, and state legitimacy and strength. Examining twelve wealthy and developing countries from five regions, representing democratic and authoritarian government structures, confederations, and federations, this book will be of interest to those teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in Political Development, Democratization, Federalism, and Comparative Political Economy.

Human Rights and Social Care: Putting Rights into Practice
Sam Smith explores the development of a human rights-based approach to social care, thus she contributes to the development of a culture of awareness of human rights that challenges the perception of human rights law and practice being solely the preserve of lawyers. By approaching human rights in an accessible and informative manner, Sam Smith demystifies human rights in their social care context. Starting with a brief historical summary of the development of human rights from the UN Charter 1945 through to the development of the European Convention on Human Rights, Sam Smith explores the differing approaches to the development of Civil and Political Rights and Economic Social and Cultural Rights. Particular attention is given to the development of specific convention rights such as those embodied in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), the UN Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and the implications that these convention rights have for social care policy and practice. The book is structured to explore particular areas of social care (client groups) and makes use of thought-provoking practical examples and case studies to illustrate how human rights theory can enhance social care in practice. While the focus of the book is on the development of Human Rights and Social Care in Scotland, a review of international policy developments is undertaken in each area, to provide scope for comparative analysis and the cross-jurisdiction applications of its key themes.

The Need for Critical Thinking and the Scientific Method
The book exposes many of the misunderstandings about the scientific method and its application to critical thinking. It argues for a better understanding of the scientific method and for nurturing critical thinking in the community. This knowledge helps the reader to analyze issues more objectively, and warns about the dangers of bias and propaganda. The principles are illustrated by considering several issues that are currently being debated. These include anthropogenic global warming (often loosely referred to as climate change), dangers to preservation of the Great Barrier Reef, and the expansion of the gluten-free food market and genetic engineering.

Constitutional Development in the Caribbean
The post-independence history of the Commonwealth Caribbean has witnessed continuous constitutional debate. The contrasting opinions of Eric Williams and Norman Manley as to whether or not the Commonwealth Caribbean constitutional foundations are imported or indigenous, respectively, lay the foundation as the philosophical starting point for the examination of the political dimensions of the constitutional controversies. In Constitutional Development in the Commonwealth Caribbean, Hamid Ghany delves into constitutional evolution in the Caribbean and demonstrates how political elites in the Caribbean have manipulated political processes to maintain their hold on power behind a facade of a desire for change. The retention of the Westminster-Whitehall model has resulted in lasting institutions that, to the detriment of the populace they serve, are resistant to change. Ghany deconstructs and examines the differences between the Westminster-Whitehall constitutions of the Commonwealth Caribbean and the original Westminster model in the United Kingdom and provides an understanding of the continuing inability to craft significant reforms.

Beyond Westminster in the Caribbean
The challenges faced by Commonwealth Caribbean democracies particularly in the past 20 years has forced a reckoning with how the Westminster model of government has served the needs of these small states. Crime, corruption and struggling economies operating in a globalised world have brought into sharp relief the threat to once-stable democracies. Beyond Westminster in the Caribbean analyses Westminster governance in the post-independence Caribbean and reflects on the weaknesses of the model, the absence of a will to change despite the deficiencies and proposals for the way forward. Drawing on the contributions of distinguished scholars, prominent serving politicians and a sitting prime minister, the book offers a critical review of the state of Caribbean constitutions and a frank discussion of whether these small states can weather the threats that have presented themselves since the end of the Cold-War and the rise of neoliberalism. Can the Westminister model survive and thrive in the contemporary Caribbean, or is it time to move beyond Westminster?

Public Administration Research Methods: Tools for Evaluation and Evidence-Based Practice
The best decisions made by public managers are based not on instinct, but on an informed understanding of what's happening on the ground. Policy may be directed by ideology, but it must also be founded on reality. The challenge of making the right decisions as a public manager is often, therefore, based on the need for rigorous, actionable research. Now in a thoughtfully revised second edition, this textbook shows students of Public Administration exactly how to use both qualitative and quantitative research techniques to give them the best chance to make the right decisions. Uniquely, Eller, Gerber, and Robinson present research methodologies through a series of real-life case studies, with each chapter exploring situations where a public manager can use research to answer specific questions, demonstrating how that research can inform future policy. Taking readers through the key concepts, from research design and sampling to interviews, survey data, and more statistical-based approaches, this new edition provides a complete guide to using research in the public and voluntary sectors. New to this edition: To better orient the student, the second edition is thematically arranged. Five sections, each with a short essay, provide not only previews of the content of each section, but more importantly guide the reader through how the concepts and techniques covered relate to real-world use and application. A new chapter on applied quantitative analyses has been added to offer coverage of several commonly-used and valuable analytic techniques for decision making for policy and management: benefit-cost analysis, risk assessment, and forecasting. The second edition is accompanied by online materials containing suggested course plans and sample syllabi, PowerPoint lecture slides, and student support materials to illustrate the application of key concepts and analytic techniques. Each chapter also includes discussion questions, class exercises, end of chapter review questions, and key vocabulary to provide students with a range of further tools to apply research principles to practical situations.

Local Politics in Jordan and Morocco: Strategies of Centralization and Decentralization
In recent years, authoritarian states in the Middle East and North Africa have faced increasing international pressure to decentralize political power. Decentralization is presented as a panacea that will foster good governance and civil society, helping citizens procure basic services and fight corruption. Two of these states, Jordan and Morocco, are monarchies with elected parliaments and recent experiences of liberalization. Morocco began devolving certain responsibilities to municipal councils decades ago, while Jordan has consistently followed a path of greater centralization. Their experiences test such assumptions about the benefits of localism. Janine A. Clark examines why Morocco decentralized while Jordan did not and evaluates the impact of their divergent paths, ultimately explaining how authoritarian regimes can use decentralization reforms to consolidate power. Local Politics in Jordan and Morocco argues that decentralization is a tactic authoritarian regimes employ based on their coalition strategies to expand their base of support and strengthen patron-client ties. Clark analyzes the opportunities that decentralization presents to local actors to pursue their interests and lays out how municipal-level figures find ways to use reforms to their advantage. In Morocco, decentralization has resulted not in greater political inclusivity or improved services, but rather in the entrenchment of pro-regime elites in power. The main Islamist political party has also taken advantage of these reforms. In Jordan, decentralization would undermine the networks that benefit elites and their supporters. Based on extensive fieldwork, Local Politics in Jordan and Morocco is an important contribution to Middle East studies and political science that challenges our understanding of authoritarian regimes' survival strategies and resilience.

Los Angeles Documentary and the Production of Public History, 1958-1977 explores how documentarians working between the election of John F. Kennedy and the Bicentennial created conflicting visions of the recent and more distant American past. Drawing on a wide range of primary documents, Joshua Glick analyzes the films of Hollywood documentarians such as David Wolper and Mel Stuart, along with lesser-known independents and activists such as Kent Mackenzie, Lynne Littman, and Jesus Salvador Trevino. While the former group reinvigorated a Cold War cultural liberalism, the latter group advocated for social justice in a city plagued by severe class stratification and racial segregation. Glick examines how mainstream and alternative filmmakers turned to the archives, civic institutions, and production facilities of Los Angeles in order to both change popular understandings of the city and shape the social consciousness of the nation.

Building on the success of the first edition, Ethics for the Public Service Professional, 2e will be a single-source reference for the topic of ethics and ethical decision making as it relates to government service, and service within the areas of homeland security and emergency services at the local, county, state, and federal levels. This text will discuss the challenges faced by today's public service professionals and administrators with regards to incorporating ethics within daily decisions, discretion, and duties. This in-depth reference will help to eliminate the warped impressions created by modern dramas as to what is ethical and what is discretionary within the confines of a public servant's job. The text will involve a thorough examination of the history of ethics, codes and legislation relating to public service. This text will be essential for the foundational development and explanation of protocols used within a successful organization for those persons new to the realm of emergency services and will serve as a reference for those already involved within the field.

Ganga Rejuvenation: Governance Challenges And Policy Options
This book focuses on governance and management issues in the much publicized 'Ganga Rejuvenation Project', led by the Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi. Attempts over the past three decades to clean up and rejuvenate one of the world's greatest rivers have proved futile. The major reasons for the lack of success are absence of long-term planning, poor co-ordination and failure to sustain whatever little infrastructure for water and sewage treatment could be developed. Focusing on these broad aspects, the book explores spaces for better governance through active community participation, knowledge management, prospects of Public-Private-Partnership, e-governance, youth education, waterfront development, lessons from past failures, comparative international analogies, utilization of external aid and global expertise in successful implementation of a sustainable long-term plan for a river basin's integrated development of both the economy and environment. A host of activities, such as, improving pollution monitoring systems, new development plans for tourism enhancement; river dredging and sewering riparian cities are already being carried in the hope of quick results. The Government of India has also appointed a task force for preparation of a long-term strategy. However, substantial knowledge gaps persist especially with regard to governance. This book aims to address the governance and policy issues and will be a very timely contribution to cleaning as well as rejuvenating Ganga, a river that is lifeline of millions of people.

Global Politics and its Violent Care for Indigeneity: Sequels to Colonialism
This book traces the international political and legal developments concerning the rights, treatment and status of indigenous peoples. The work argues that indigenous peoples are governed in international politics through particular biopolitical technologies, technologies that appear benevolent, yet are nothing short of colonialist. The authors demonstrate how the celebrated political inclusion of indigenous peoples in fact marks their exclusion and how the peoples' much-admired environmental knowledge constrains indigeneity, rendering it local rather than promoting their global political position.

Ethics, Integrity, and Aptitude in Governance
This textbook methodically helps students to assimilate, articulate, and expand their knowledge and understanding of ethics, accountability, and integrity in public governance and service. The text is supported by illustrations, highlights of recent research and studies, and examples created out of the participant-observant experiences of the author as a public servant. In order to supplement the explanations and discussions, Ethics, Integrity and Aptitude in Governance closely follows a `consilience' approach to topics wherein facts are intricately linked to the theories across relevant disciplines. This approach will help students to trace the evolution of concepts such as ethics, good governance and others, and assess their application in the real world. The book will prove to be an indispensable companion for students and practitioners of public administration in developing a holistic understanding of the challenges of public service in democratic nations like India. It is supported by illustrations, highlights of recent research and studies, and examples created out of the participant-observant experiences of the author as a public servant. Key Features: Integrated with a comprehensive coverage of both theoretical aspects and real-world applications of ethical practices in governance Logically sequenced into seven sections that discuss ethics and human values, ethics and public service, probity in governance, challenges of effective governance, corporate governance, ethical issues in international relations and public funding, and emotional intelligence and aptitude. Includes Chapter-end review exercise for practice and book-end case studies with answer cues to demonstrate how case studies should be studied and interpreted

The sustainable development goals signed in 2016 marked a new phase in global development thinking, one which is focused on ecologically and fiscally sustainable human settlements. Few countries offer a better testing ground for their attainment than post-apartheid South Africa. Since the coming to power of the African National Congress, the country has undergone a policy making revolution, driven by an urgent need to improve access to services for the country's black majority. A quarter century on from the fall of apartheid, Building a Capable State asks what lessons can be learned from the South African experience. The book assesses whether the South African government has succeeded in improving service delivery, focusing on the vital sectors of water and sanitation, energy, roads, public transport and housing. Emphasizing the often-overlooked role of local government institutions and finance, the book demonstrates that effective service delivery can have a profound impact on the social structure of emerging economies, and must form an integral part of any future development strategy. A comprehensive examination of urban service delivery in the global South, Building a Capable State is essential reading for students and practitioners across the social sciences, public finance and engineering sectors.
