Organisational Change in Irish Public Administration
Capturing, mapping and understanding organisational change within bureaucracies is inherently problematic, and the paucity of empirical research in this area reflects the traditional reluctance of scholars to pursue this endeavour. In this article, drawing on the Irish case of organisational change, potential avenues for overcoming such challenges are presented. Drawing on the resources of a time-series database which captures and codes the life-cycle of all Irish public organisations since independence, the paper explores the evolution of the Irish administrative system since the independence of the state in 1922. These findings provide some pointers toward overcoming the challenges associated with studying change in Whitehall-type bureaucracies.
