as a discipline has been traditionally confined to the civil
administration of government. The military and other security actors
have not been considered as part of public administration. However,
military authorities are increasingly performing civilian tasks such
as state building after military conflicts abroad or supplementing
civil authorities during emergencies at home.
certain aspects of the war on terror roles of the civil
administation and the military have become blurred and overlapping.
Therefore, public administration research is more and more focusing
also on the civil activities of the military and the security
activities of the civil administation.
In its first part the
colloquium is concerned with the administrative and political role
of the military and with the relationship between public
administration and national security.
- The role of the
soldier in society,
administration and the war on terror,
- "State building"
and the role of the military,
- Common Foreign and
Security Policy (CFSP), European Security and Defense Policy (ESDP),
- UN Security Council
and International Governance.
The second part of
the Colloquium focuses on controversial issues of traditional public
administration. The role of citizens toward public authorities, the
application of market principles to public administration, and
coordination and control mechanisms of public administration on the
EU and national level are going to be discussed. Topics are
- The citizens right
- Privatization of
- An appraisal on new
public management reforms,
- The community
method and the open method of coordination in the EU,
structure and accountability of regulatory agencies.
