Abstract

How can public-sector regimes, agencies, programs, and activities be organized and managed to achieve public purposes? This general question is the concern of officials in all branches and at all levels of the public sector: legislators, elected and appointed executives, and judges at federal, state, and local levels of government. Underlying it is an even broader question: how can government continually improve performance so as to earn the respect of citizens who pay for and whose lives are affected by its program and regulatory activities? The fact that this question is of fundamental importance in politics, policy implementation, public administration, and public management motivates the systematic study of governance, that is, research whose objective is determining how, why, and with what consequences public-sector activity is structured and managed.
