International Administration

Public administration students as well as public managers function in an interdependent world. This course aims to benefit students in the following ways. First course contents will combine conceptual foundations of public administration of the United States with other countries’ administrative systems with a focus on international experiences and lessons. The course will focus key administrative features in the United States, and a large number of illustrations and micro-case studies of other countries worldwide. In this course students will also focus on women in the public service by focusing on path-setters across the globe, the status of women in the world’s executive and legislative bodies, as well as leadership and representation of women in public service.  Last but not least students will become familiar with the literature on managing ‘international public administrations’ such as INGOs. Students will critically examine key issues relating to international administrative bodies: bureaucratic autonomy, administrative behavior and policy-making influence. Drawing on different perspectives, students will identify promising avenues for problem solving in international administrations by focusing on expertise, bureaucratic representation and multi-level public service bargains.
