The UK Experience of Public Administration Reform

Current Good Practices and New Developments in Public Service Management

image of The UK Experience of Public Administration Reform

Public sector reform has moved on apace since the first of the Commonwealth Public Service Country Profile Series was launched in 1995 when the principles of New Public Management (NPM) were in an early stage of adoption. Since then, the various civil services described in the series have undergone radical change in scope, organisation and approach rendering a revision timely. Now up dated and completely revised, these reissued Country Profiles continue to be an accessible and valuable source of reference which attempt to both describe and analyse the often tumultuous and controversial public sector reforms which have taken place in contributing countries since 1995. Practising bureaucrats diplomats political and academic audiences will find these new books invaluable in benchmarking best practice in public sector reform across Commonwealth member countries.

Devolved Administrations

The constitutional reform programme of the late 1990s produced radical changes in the structure and operation of government in the UK. The arrangements put in place for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland do not offer a uniform pattern of devolution but instead reflect the differing history and administrative structures of those parts of the UK. Devolution has, however, added to, rather than rewritten, the constitutional and legislative framework described in Chapter 2.
