Navigating Responses to the Changing Times

The 2019 issue of the Asian Review for Public Administration delved deep into the nuanced experiences in Public Administration across Asia.

The cases investigated reveal various countries’ differences in administration, governance, and management methods in areas such as civil service, central and local government relations, education, public-private partnerships, and public water service. The findings also highlighted the key strengths and weaknesses of the approaches upheld tracing back to their beginnings up to the present, punctuated by attempts to reform and innovate existing systems to be responsive to the changing times.

History plays a vital role in public administration as it draws a clear picture of the past leading to further reflexivity.
