Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Around the world, the conceptual enlargement for implementing public management involves several experts as well as prestigious universities, associations, and education and research centers.

Teaching public management (TPM) has become the most effective tool for professionalization and performance of public management. Its recent evolutions incorporate and develop new adjacent concepts—new public administration (NPA), public governance (PG), new public management (NPM), smart public administration (SPA) etc.—inscribing into an obvious trajectory, based on classical public administration, substantiated on Weber’ s conception and now including theories of public choice, policy analysis, etc.

Asserted in 1970s, NPM has been used for decades in attempts to express and reveal the above evolutions. For the time being, during the post-NPM period, there is a broad and diverse network of teaching and training programs, which, based on the traditions and expertise of schools of public administration, public economics, management, and political sciences, have defined and substantiated a complex interdisciplinary area aiming at TPM.

This Special Issue on “Teaching Public Management” aims to highlight and valorize the contributions of teaching staff, experts, and practitioners with the aim to design and operationalize educational tools, methods and methodologies, comparative studies, impact analyses, and educational innovation, relevant within TPM processes.
