The recent acceleration of global governance arrangements has created a new sphere of public administration beyond the nation-state, along with a new set of challenges for national and local governments. This innovative book explores the frontiers of knowledge at the intersection of public administration and international relations scholarship. Expert contributors from around the world provide an interdisciplinary perspective on a range of administrative issues related to international and transboundary organizations. The chapters combine conceptual approaches and empirical research to address questions of autonomy, legitimacy and influence, with a focus on significant global policy issues in health, the environment, science and technology, poverty and trade. This comprehensive approach illustrates the expansive contours of this burgeoning field and outlines vital implications for public administration theory, practice and teaching. This fascinating and timely book will be of great interest to scholars and students of public administration, global governance and international relations.

`As a scholar, academic manager, and consultant in public administration, I am familiar with its international and transnational challenges, which permanently confront my organization, the Fundacao Getulio Vargas (FGV). I have found in this book clues for my own work, both within my organization and in its mutual contributions with multilateral and international strategic partners. A crucial theoretical gap, with serious practical global, regional and national consequences, is finally on its way to be filled.' -- Bianor Scelza Cavalcanti, International Director of FGV, Brazil
'For decades, the only available analytical framework to understand public administration was the national one. By taking a perspective that goes beyond the national boundaries, the authors provide us with helpful tools to better comprehend the role of networks, collaboration and different forms of partnerships involving and impacting public administrations in the context of global governance. This informative and innovative book will not only give food for thought to public administration theorists and researchers, but also to all public administration practitioners.' -- Nathalie Loiseau, Director, Ecole Nationale d'Administration (ENA), France
'Public Administration in the Context of Global Governance is an ambitious book that consciously seeks to accelerate the convergence of international relations and public administration perspectives with regard to public administration in global governance. For the most part it succeeds in raising the key and abiding questions regarding theory, process and comparative public administration in the context of global governance. It explores the institutions, structures and procedures and does so through a variety of theoretical and case study lenses. A thought provoking book that should be studied by students on MPAs and public sector MBAs.' -- Andrew Massey, Exeter University, UK
