Where has all the Public Administration gone?
For many years, concern has been raised about the demise of the teaching of public administration. No longer is the subject taught in its own right as an undergraduate subject in the UK. The emphasis has moved from administration to management. The malaise in the teaching of public administration is such that the subject has almost disappeared. It is time to re-visit the importance of public administration as a taught academic subject, and its importance in many other academic disciplines.
