48.01 Administrative Culture amid Issues of the New Nationalism, Borders, Margins, Post-Colonialism or Inequality
The rise of nationalist politicians across many democracies in recent years has revived the fears of De Tocqueville (1835) of the tyranny of the majority. In addition, flows of migrants across porous borders have raised issues of national identity and severely challenged free trade pacts. Refugees and ethno-religious minorities existing at the margins of society have also suffered waves of discrimination or expulsion. Post-colonial effects and widespread inequality also challenge bureaucracies in many societies. From all of these turbulent processes, how will administrative culture be changed? Papers are welcome on any of these topics, with preference given to those having impact beyond one country.

48.02 Developing Public Policy in Collaboration between the State and Civil Society Groups

There is renewed interest among scholars of public administration in exploring the possibilities of civic participation in policy-making and implementation. This varies from the White House wikis that encouraged participation online about policy proposals in the US, to the Russian attempts to provide some budget for civil society groups to conduct public administration. In western, pluralist democracies there are tens of thousands of civil society groups attempting to persuade administrators of policy -- but how are these developing in other countries, and with what effects? How much room is there in authoritarian regimes for state-civil society administration? Papers are welcome on any of these topics, with preference given to those having impact beyond one country.

48.06 Transparency, Open Government, E-governance, Surveillance, Sous-veillance, and the Changing Culture of Administration
From small beginnings in the 1970s with a movement for freedom of information and privacy laws, the transparency movement now encompasses the majority of nation states. Inquiry ranges from journalists' rights to information to officials' rights to privacy; from official email on private servers to online delivery of administrative services; and from surveillance by intelligence services to sous-veillance of police by citizens with cell phones. In this rapidly changing environment, what is the effect on administrative culture and practice? Papers are welcome on any of these topics, with preference given to those having impact beyond one country.
