2016 (English)In: Nordic Administrative Reforms - Lessons for Public Management / [ed] Greve, Carsten, Lægreid, Per and Rykkja, Lise H, Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan, 2016, 1, 57-78 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This chapter addresses the degree of autonomy, politicization and coordination capacity in the Nordic countries looking at variations across Nordic countries as well as between Nordic countries and other European models. The importance of the East Nordic model is addressed, and also the ministry-agency divide. In terms of autonomy, a distinction is made between managerial autonomy and autonomy in policy-making, and policy implementation respectively. The chapter looks at the question of increased politicization, that is, the degree to which politicians accept the professional expertise of senior civil servants. The chapter also looks at coordination capacity, addressing hierarchy and network arrangements as well as the quality of coordinating along the vertical and horizontal dimension.
