About this title


New coordination practices have emerged across European public sectors in order to cope with complex societal challenges. Governments struggle to handle challenging policy problems that escape simple solutions and transcend the borders of organizations, administrative levels and ministerial areas. Public sector coordination has become one of the key aspects of governments' policy capacity. This important collection is comprised of 20 European case studies; it offers valuable insights into public sector coordination and points to important lessons for devising and implementing new coordination instruments. It is essential reading for public sector practitioners as well as students and scholars of public administration and policy.
