About this product
- DescriptionEuropean integration is under pressure. At the same time, the tion of a European administrative space is explicitly voiced. Hence it is time to examine whether a shared idea of the public servant exists in Europe. This volume shows how the public servant has been conceived throughout European history and in contrast with other conceptions (especially American ones), and whether they are currently converging towards a common European administrative identity. This timely analysis constitutes an original effort to integrate history of ideas and cutting edge survey research. It presents both the ideational foundations as well as its translation in today's European administrative space. This volume hence provides a true dialogue between sub-disciplines within political science with the goal of finding synergies instead of boundary delineation.

In 2010, he won the Marshall E. Dimock Award for the best lead article in the Public Administration Review during the volume year 2009. His current research looks at knowledge utilisation in direct democracy, positioning strategies of secondary capital cities, and bureaucratic behaviour in policy implementation and in policy failure. Dr Patrick Overeem is an assistant professor at the Institute of Public Administration at Leiden University in The Netherlands, where he specialises in political and administrative theory, with a special interest in public ethics. For his doctoral dissertation (2010; published 2012), he studied the constitutional rationale for disentangling politics and administration in modern states. Articles have been published in Public Administration Review, Administration & Society, and Administrative Theory & Praxis. His current research concerns constitutional legitimacy, virtue-ethics (especially MacIntyre's), statesmanship, and the political implications of value pluralism. He teaches courses on political philosophy, administrative ethics, public values, and the philosophy of social science.
