Special Issue "Sustainability in Public Administrations: Evaluation of Performance and Financial Analysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2020).
Interests: transparency and accountability of public administrations; corporate governance in the public sector; financial risks in public governments
This Special Issue aims at contributing with new insights regarding the performance and corporate governance of the public sector to reach sustainability in public administrations (state and local governments, universities, hospitals, nationalized entities, etc. in developing and developed countries).
Public concerns about the level of countries’ borrowing have arisen, and the need to reduce the public sector cost and the debt results in the implementation of mandatory requirements in many countries. Such concerns create pressure to make public statements about the sustainability of their debt and how financially prudent they are in order to restore the financial markets confidence. Therefore, original contributions are encouraged in governance and management by including methods, tools, and practices aligned with the contemporary necessity to create and implement a sustainable public sector.
Although theoretical papers are also welcome for this Special Issue, preference will be given to empirical and comparative analyses. We expect new practical insights for the stakeholders involved in the implementation of sustainable public administrations of entities.
