An International Political Economy Perspective of Administrative Reform
Author: IAN E. POWNALL
Published in PAM, Vol. 4 No. 4
This paper outlines a method of studying administrative reform in
nation-states through a focus upon the role and function of policy transfer
structured by concepts of power derived from international political
economy (IPE). In this approach, the nation state is viewed as the
competitive state continually seeking advantage compared with other nation
states, where administrative reform is one method pursued in this objective
and driven by international factors. Through a discussion of the nature of
competitiveness and power with the international system, a discrete range
of models are presented to account for administrative reform which are
then illustrated through two case studies of China and Hong Kong.
