"It is necessary for the academic field of Public Administration to re-invent itself.", Geert Bouckaert, editor 'European Perspectives for Public Administration'
and priorities for the public sector in Europe
The public sector in our society has over the past two decades undergone substantial changes, as has the academic field studying Public Administration (PA). In the next twenty years major shifts are further expected to occur in the way futures are anticipated and different cultures are integrated. Practice will be handled in a relevant way, and more disciplines will be engaging in the field of Public Administration.
