Public Management During and Post Brexit: Services in a state of liminality

___________________________________________________________________________

Description

It is somewhat of a truism to say that public services are under considerable pressure. The ongoing impact of austerity and the likely effects of Brexit presents an ever more complex environment for the public sector in the United Kingdom and Ireland. While change is and has generally been, a constant, the discontinuous nature of the current public sector landscape represents a unique challenge to public management focused academics and practitioners alike.

Public services find themselves facing a range of challenges: demographic changes, technological changes, austerity, and Brexit. These challenges are not unique to regions or states but cross boundaries and borders throughout the UK and Ireland. Varying degrees of devolution across Great Britain and Northern Ireland have stimulated divergence in approaches, attitudes, and the ability of public services to navigate this complexity.

We are interested in exploring how public services across the UK and Ireland are addressing these service challenges. Communities, residents, and businesses are increasingly mobile, and public service boundaries may become limiting factors, whilst users of public services are expecting increasing personalization. This one-day seminar is an opportunity for academics and practitioners with an interest in public management and citizen-centred policy-making to explore the dimensions of the current environment and look to the future.

There will also be a practitioner-led discussion roundtable on the empirical and practical challenges of public management. The purpose of these sessions will be to provoke debate and future research avenues.
