e-Government, Decentralization and Improving Delivery of Services

The discipline of public administration has come a long way since its initial narrow focus on the workings of civil service systems in industrializing countries of the West. Over the years it has diversified considerably as have the administrative arrangements which practitioners implement and academics study. The search for improved performance has entailed experimentation with and adoption of new organizational structures, the techniques of strategic human resource management, public private partnerships, contracting, community engagement and other innovations. This contemporary diversity of public administration is reflected in this issue of the Asian Review of Public Administration (ARPA). There is an extraordinarily broad range of topics that our authors have chosen to explore utilizing varied methodologies that demonstrate the richness of public administration practice and study in the Asia-Pacific region.
