Special Issue "Strategic Management of Public Services Organisations and Collaborative Governance: Integrating the Theoretical and Empirical Perspectives"
A special issue of Administrative Sciences (ISSN 2076-3387).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2019
The purpose of this Special Issue is outlining paths of integration between the two strands of research in the strategic management of public services organisations, on one hand, and the strand of inquiry into developing collaborative governance, on the other hand. This Special Issue stems from the research team of the European Union funded project “COGOV”, which aims at integrating the two theoretical perspectives.
Papers in the Special Issue will cover both terrains of inquiry.
The introduction paper (prepared by Edoardo Ongaro, Ewan Ferlie, Keith Shaw and Jacob Torfing) will outline possible lines of interconnection between the stream of research in the strategic management of public services organisations and the strand of inquiry in collaborative governance and highlight ways forward to combine the two streams of research for the renewal of public governance.
Prof. Dr. Edoardo Ongaro
