  • Embedding Expertise for Policy Responses to COVID-19: Comparing
           Decision-Making Structures in Two Federal Democracies

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The COVID-19 crisis focused attention on how experts from different scientific fields provided advice to governments through expert committees and task forces. We compared experiences in two federal democracies, Belgium and Australia, by applying a mixed methods approach (literature review, media review, policy documents analysis). This comparative study found that expertise was institutionalized in different ways and its processes and priorities shifted over time. The policy coordination challenges inherent in federalism were largely overcome in Australia through strongly embedded health advisory processes. In Belgium, the advisory process was less stable, with advisory councils being abandoned, replaced, expanded, or downgraded during the course of the crisis.

  • The political logic of E-Government and the Discourses of Innovation in
           the Public Sector in Cape Verde

      Abstract: Abstract The goal of this study is to deepen the reflections on discursive articulations, aiming at the significance of E-government in Cape Verde, under the perspective of Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe’s Discourse Theory. We carry out an instrumental case study and use the retroduction method proposed by Glynos and Howarth. The results show that a convergence began to be built between the discourses of the Government, NOSI and the citizens, in the sense of mobilizing efforts aimed at the attribution of an electronic configuration to all public services in that country.

           – A Review

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In addition to illuminating personal and institutional factors that facilitate social integration of students in higher education, the current study delineates their effects on retention and persistence. The systematic literature review approach is employed to broach and synthesize seminal studies conducted between 2010 and 2021. Among other prominent factors, the study outcomes underscore not only peer interaction, student-faculty interaction, extracurricular and residential activities, but also, other attributes like financial opportunities, language proficiency and communication skills as imperative underpinnings and correlates of social integration and retention in higher education. In view of these findings, the study proffers suggestions for policy and research.

      Abstract: Abstract The article offers a broad overview and comparative analysis of legal training and the provision of judicial representation status in European countries with different legal systems and the Russian Federation. Based on a comparative analysis of the best practices of European legal systems, the study recommends to implement a state accreditation for representatives of state authorities followed by an exam or training in a Bar Association (by mentoring) or at the workplace and suggests providing regular training courses followed by an exam as a prerequisite for maintaining the status of a judicial representative.

  • Perceptions of Sport Governance and Performance in United Arab Emirates

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the perceptions of sport regulators and executives on national sport. Mann–Whitney test and exploratory factor analyses reveal the lacking of unified interpretations of sport performance and governance between sport state regulators and sport executives. While regulators impose reform policies, sport executives perceive these policies as being jurisdictionally external, bureaucratic, and trespassing. Sport executives resist change by establishing a parallel organisational culture based on their interpretation of good governance and excellence. National sport performance is vulnerable to continuous mismatch as regulators insist on implementing reforms and sport executives seek more state funding and more institutional autonomy.

  • COVID-19 and Distance Learning: International Doctoral Students'
           Satisfaction With the General Quality of Learning and Aspects of
           University Support in Russia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Since this catastrophic crisis began, learning at universities has changed to distance mode to reduce person-to-person transmission of the virus. Using a survey, the article compares the experiences of international doctoral students in this COVID crisis with the general quality of learning and their experiences with various aspects of university support. The descriptive results suggest that the overall satisfaction with the general quality of learning was quite high among both Russian-speaking and English-speaking students. There were no statistically significant differences between English-speaking and Russian-speaking doctoral students. However, there was a statistically significant difference in fields of study, with international doctoral students in medical sciences being the most dissatisfied with the general quality of learning. After comparing international doctoral students' experiences with various aspects of university support, the results further reveal that English-speaking international doctoral students were dissatisfied with access to laboratory equipment, software for working on a dissertation, and library services the most. The article advocates that universities provide and improve their support systems, especially by making laboratory equipment, software for working on dissertations, and library services more accessible to English-speaking international doctoral students during this pandemic, to give them a positive learning experience.

  • Scientization Under Pressure—The Problematic Role of Expert Bodies
           During the Handling of the COVID-19 Pandemic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article focuses on the role of experts in the Norwegian decision-making process in central government during the crisis management of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is based on a structural-instrumental and a cultural perspective. The main findings are that managing the pandemic led to a centralization of power in the hands of the political leadership, a blurring of the dichotomy between politics and administration, and a variety of expert advice. The crisis management also reflected the cultural appropriateness of a collaborative decision-making style, but it was not characterized by a scientization of policymaking. Rather than policymaking by experts it was policymaking informed by experts.

  • Public Sector Corruption and Accountability in Cost Deviations and
           Overruns of Public Projects

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract There is great public concern on cost deviations and overruns in public projects, particularly regarding the impact of corruption and accountability. To examine this question, we use a data set of over 4,000 public projects from Portugal covering a 25-year period. By using the corruption and accountability index for Portugal, we are able to focus on the potential influence of these dimensions, while controlling for institutional, political, and economic variables. Our research method follows an econometric approach, using the cost deviation and the cost overrun of each project as dependent variables. The implication of this study is that more corruption and less accountability can lead to higher cost deviations and overruns.

      Abstract: Abstract As the needs of UK infrastructure investment become clearer, the problem of funding these investments remain open to debate. To aid this, the development of nuclear power station’s is considered. The objective of the paper is to develop a governance lens that supports an assessment of both historic practice and current proposals to support discussion on infrastructure investment options. To meet this aim, general funding of infrastructure together with three governance paradigms are examined. The implications for infrastructure investment are highlighted and alternative paradigms analysed. These are subsequently discussed and conclusions drawn.

  • The Role of Scientific Expertise in COVID-19 Policy-making: Evidence from
           Four European Countries

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Immense uncertainty and the need for drastic interventions cause politicians to rely heavily on scientific advice for underpinning or legitimating their COVID-19 decision-making. This paper explores the role of scientific advice in this policy field in Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK. It shows that scientific advice is based on the disciplinary, mainly medical, backgrounds of advisors but is also influenced by social and economic values, which are core to what politicians find important. During the pandemic a growing gap between scientific advice and political decisions is observed.

  • In the Pursuit of the Balance between Efficiency and Responsiveness: A
           Case Study on the Innovation of the administrative Service Organization in

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Efficiency and responsiveness are always considered to be two essential but often contradictory values in theory and practice of public administration. This article mainly addresses whether there is a possibility that the efficiency and responsiveness are able to be balanced. Through outlining the evolution process of the Administrative Service Organization in Nanhu District, we argue that the government has gradually focused on providing better services to the public. We concluded that the structural innovation, along with process innovation and conceptual innovation, can be viewed as effective measures to keep the balance between government efficiency and responsiveness to citizens.

           Developing and Developed Countries

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract We use large panel data of 107 developed and developing countries to examine the impact of the International Public Sector Accounting Standards (IPSAS) adoption on governance quality. Our results show that IPSAS has a positive and significant influence on governance quality, suggesting that IPSAS ensure accountability and transparency between the government and its citizens. However, we find that the positive effect of IPSAS is limited to developing countries. The findings provide empirical evidence to policymakers and regulators in their pursuit of global harmonisation of governmental accounting through the adoption of IPSAS, especially in developing countries.

  • A Comparative-Historical Study of Accountability in the Persian Public
           Administration: Is There a Paradox'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract There is divine and democratic legitimacy in the Islamic Republic state of Iran. Therefore, bureaucracy confronts dichotomies such as ‘religious commitment and being qualified/professional’, ‘accountability to Vali-e-Faqih and public’, ‘alms-tax dichotomy’, and ‘institutions and Bonyads. The purpose of this paper is to investigate this paradox using historical-comparative analysis. In conclusion, through three mainstreams – i.e., ancient Persia tolerant bureaucracy, contributions from the new public service professional principles and restricting the power of Guardian Jurist to determine the overall red lines of bureaucracy – insights are presented to resolve these conflicts, in particular, the accountability paradox, which needs further explanation and empirical study.
