About the 2015 Conference.....
Public management faces a 'perfect storm' of challenges ranging from growing expectations and demand, demographic change and financial constraint. Whilst some have sought to look for stability in weathering the storm, others have argued for more radical alternatives.
For some, the traditional tools and strategies of public management seem ill-equipped to deal with contemporary challenges and complexities. They have begun to advocate and shape a future of transformational change seizing on the moment of dislocation in the wake of the financial crisis. This has involved an acceleration of new public management practices and marketization.
Others have recognised and re-evaluated the resources and know-how held in bureaucracies and professions - as well as citizens and politicians - and seek new ways to promote the core values of public service. This opens the door to enhanced participation, use of digital technologies, and new ways of organising public services.
IRSPM 2015 explores the potentialities of public management to respond, reflect, re-invent and revolutionise in the wake of 'crisis'.
