Public Service in a Globalized World: Central Training Institutes in India and Hong Kong available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:

Training for public services has a critical place in the operation of modern governments, but effective training has become more difficult. Increased globalization has pressured individual countries to adopt changes in structure and administrative processes in order to operate according to standard rules and procedures applicable across countries. Based on extensive field research, Huque (McMaster U., Canada; City U. of Hong Kong) and Vyas (City U. of Hong Kong) examine the operation and performance of central training institutes in India and Hong Kong, the adjustments they have made, and how they have coped with those changes. The authors offer strategies for dealing with the demands of globalization, but also conclude that the centralized approach may become increasingly less relevant.
