Overview

Halligan (public administration, U. of Canberra) presents case study examinations of civil service systems in Britain, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and the United States, with an eye towards comparatively studying divergences in systems that arose from a common tradition. Addressing questions of the interrelationships between civil service and public management reform, the primary concerns of the case studies are the question of political balance in the redesign of civil services, the persistence of path-dependency in reform patterns, and the extent of significant change over time.
