Abstract

The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) is the central scientific network within the massive set of bureaucracies that is responsible for Europe's Common Fisheries Policy (CFP). While spending the past 25 years failing to sustain Europe's fish stocks, this management system also became adept at making the lives of its scientists miserable. Now it is being confronted by the complex challenge of an ecosystem-based approach to fisheries management. If this combination of a multi-national bureaucracy, hard politics, and scientific uncertainty has made it impossible to maintain many individual fish stocks, how are decisions going to be made that consider everything from sea birds to climate change? The old political saw that "if you can't solve a problem, make it bigger" has never been put to a test like this! Yet ICES has begun to rise in an impressive way to the scientific challenge of providing advice for an ecosystem approach within the world's most cumbersome fisheries management system. This book lays out the results of extensive sociological research on ICES and the decision making systems into which it feeds. ICES is finding ways to provide effective advice in the many situations where scientific advice is needed but a clear, simple answer is out of reach. In spite of the difficulties, scientists are beginning to help the various parties concerned with management to deal with facts about nature in ways that are more useful and transparent.

Abstract

Predictable and unpredictable challenges continually confront the policy settings and policy frameworks of governments. They provide a constantly changing dynamic within which policy-making operates. Governments at all levels are asking their public services to identify innovative and workable reforms to anticipate and address these challenges. Public service leaders around the world are struggling not only to better anticipate emerging demands but also to address reform backlogs. However, time and time again, major policy reforms can prove tough to implement – especially in turbulent environments – and even tougher to anchor over time. This leads to considerable uncertainty and inefficiency as governments and policy communities try to keep pace with change. Policies that unravel or are dismantled are costly and represent wasted opportunities. They lead to cynicism about the effectiveness of governments and public service advice more generally, making it more difficult to deal with other emerging challenges. This volume of proactive essays on delivering policy reform offers an intriguing blend of strategic policy advice and management insight. It brings together a diverse range of highquality contributors from overseas as well as from Australia and New Zealand – including national political leaders, public service executives, heads of independent agencies, and leading international scholars.

Comment « naît » l’idée d’une réorganisation administrative et selon quel schéma décisionnel s’impose-t-elle ? Quels en sont les acteurs principaux ?

Abstract

The transition from the French Decade to the years of the Second Restoration represents a qualifying moment in the history of Southern Italy. Closely connected to the topic of the State-Building, studied in its peculiar traits, the construction of a modern bureaucracy begins precisely from that point, contributing to a greater articulation of the Bourbon period. The core of the volume is the structure of the Ministry of Finance, investigated by focusing on its personnel.Through extensive and unpublished records, combined with a consistent bibliography, broadly composed of primary sources, the book crosses different subjects: from governmental action to the institutional one; from the individual prospective to that of the territory. The growth of the administration, which the investigation reveals, seems to influence in many aspects the profile of southern society, suggesting a dynamic dimension of the State. In the background, there was a territory far from being inactive: in fact, the State confirms his role of place identifier and classifier, even through a process of defining a bureaucratic identity in relation to the local dimensions in which it operates

Abstract

The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) process was designed in 1996 to bring Asia and Europe closer together. The Asia-Europe Meeting: Contributing to a New Global Governance Architecture focuses on the discussions and results of the eighth ASEM Summit that took place in October 2010 in Brussels. It gives a multifaceted picture of Asia-Europe convergences and disparities and helps to understand how these are dealt with through interregional political dialogue. Renowned academics and observers of Asia-Europe relations provide analysis and essential insights into the advantages and limitations of contemporary ASEM affairs, their most pertinent issues, and the role of ASEM as a constituent of the developing new global governance architecture. In addition, the book offers a unique insider's perspective of the preparations and negotiations of the Brussels events. The Annex of the book furthermore includes ASEM related primary sources not available in any publicly accessible record.

Abstract

Durch Instrumente wie PISA erlangte und erhielt die OECD die Autorität, über Erfolg und Scheitern nationalstaatlicher Bildungspolitiken zu urteilen. Regula Bürgi beleuchtet aus historischer Perspektive die Denkstile und Netzwerke, mittels derer diese internationale – vornehmlich wirtschaftspolitische – Organisation zu einer Bildungsexpertin avancieren konnte. Basierend auf vielfältigem Quellenmaterial dringt die Autorin in das Räderwerk der Organisation vor und identifiziert Schlüsseleigenschaften des OECD-Erfolgs.; Instruments such as PISA have given OECD the authority to judge relative successes and failures of national education policies. Regula Bürgi examines from an historical perspective the thinking styles and networks by means of which this international - primarily economic-political - organization could advance to become an expert in the field of education. Based on diverse source materials, the author penetrates the architecture of the organization and identifies key characteristics of OECD's success.

Abstract

Au cours des dernières décennies, les administrations locales en Europe, de plus en plus pressurisées, ont fait face à de multiples défis. Il en a résulté une vague de réformes politiques et administratives, visant à alléger cette pression, qui a modifié la gestion des collectivités locales dans de nombreux pays. D’une part, les collectivités locales sont responsables de l’efficience de l’administration, de la délivrance de services de très haute qualité, et de la bonne application de la règlementation. D’autre part, elles sont garantes de la légitimité, de la participation démocratique et de la confiance, tout ceci dans un contexte d’austérité. Cet ouvrage présente les résultats des recherches effectuées dans le cadre d’un projet international sur le service public local dans 31 pays et en tire des leçons pour les décideurs politiques afin de dessiner l’avenir des collectivités locales en Europe. Les auteurs abordent les thèmes de réformes classiques ainsi que les caractéristiques majeures de la gouvernance locale telles que l’autonomie, la performance et la participation. Cet ouvrage vise un public de chercheurs, d’étudiants et de praticiens intéressés par le futur des collectivités locales.
