Abstract

"This book is a joint effort of researchers who have been involved in research-projects and programmes that have been trying to chart and reflect upon the implications of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for Public Administration. Since the 1950s, computers had largely facilitated and the transformation of the minimal 'Night-Watch-state' into the modern 'Welfare-state', through their contribution to their effectivity, productivity and efficiency. In most Handbooks of Public Administration, computers are seen as neutral instruments and, most of the time, the role of computer technologies in the transformation of public administration is completely neglected. This 'deafening silence' is a great contrast with the way ICT's are actually changing public administration. The faster the developments in a field of study are, the more difficult it is to let the theories, related to that field of study, mature. In such circumstances, most statements will remain provisional and context-dependent. 25 years of research in Irvine (California) and Kassel (Germany) and more than 10 years of research in Tilburg/Rotterdam (The Netherlands) and about seven years of research in Glasgow/Nottingham (the United Kingdom) nonetheless enables the presentation of a modest image of public administration as it is entering the information age. Researchers in each of these groups have, nevertheless, not stopped trying to phrase theories about the implications of informatization for public administration with a more or less larges scope, that are robust in different contexts and over longer periods of time. These results and theories, covering a broad set of elements of the body of knowledge of public administration, are presented in this volume. As the authors try to demonstrate in this book, informatization developments in public administration do not only challenge the existing body of knowledge of the public administration discipline, but they are also opening up new perspectives and paradigms for the study of public administration."

Abstract

Les décennies qui suivent la Seconde Guerre mondiale sont décisives dans l'avènement en France d'un véritable gouvernement municipal, et ce bien avant que les lois de décentralisation ne reconnaissent aux communes de nouveaux champs d'intervention et des compétences élargies. À partir de l'étude approfondie de la ville de Besançon sur une période de 30 ans, l'auteur montre comment les autorités de celle-ci ont entrepris de se doter de capacités et de moyens d'action pour répondre aux multiple...

Abstract

Comment la justice fonctionne-t-elle aux marges frontalières d'un royaume, et plus largement comment s'y construit l'obéissance au souverain ? En ces territoires, le lien avec le souverain n'est peut-être pas le même qu'ailleurs. Voici une piste de recherche que se propose de suivre cet ouvrage en prenant pour terrain d'étude la Picardie, marge septentrionale du royaume de France sous François Ier , particulièrement menacée par le conflit franco-anglo-impérial en cette première partie du xvie...
