Abstract

How have the events of Fall 2001 and its aftermath reshaped perceptions about the role of government and the goals of public sector reform? Has the new focus on public security placed us at a critical juncture in the evolution of public management policy? There is evidence that some widely accepted public management prescriptions for reform are now under challenge. How broad and durable are these challenges likely to be? This paper offers a preliminary account of the how the public security agenda could reshape the wider public management policy agenda.

Keywords: public management, public administration, crisis, national security, terrorism
