Abstract [en]

The introductory essay to this special issue on Governance in Crisis has three objectives. Firstly, it tries to show that current dilemmas of governance in advanced industrial Western nations can be analysed within the common framework of the thesis of the withering of the modern welfare state. Secondly, it argues that the policy sciences have a legacy of problem-oriented and value-conscious scholarship, bestowed by Lasswell and others, which can and should be taken up in the analysis of the comprehensive problems of governance confronting advanced industrial nations. Thirdly, it considers the requirement that the policy sciences go significantly beyond a managerial perspective and take up the timely but challenging task of linking up problem-orientation to contextuality. Contributions to this issue are seen to constitute a promising step in this direction.;Current dilemmas of governance in advanced industrial Western nations can be analyzed within the common framework of the thesis of the withering of the modern welfare state. It is argued that the policy sciences have a legacy of problem-oriented & value-conscious scholarship, bestowed by Harold D. Lasswell & others, that can & should be taken up in the analysis of the comprehensive problems of governance confronting advanced industrial nations. The requirement that the policy sciences go significantly beyond a managerial perspective & take up the timely but challenging task of linking problem-orientation to contextuality is considered. 28 References.
