Full-text available
Hybridity has become a widely-used concept in public management theory and practice. Yet, there is limited insight in what constitutes a hybrid organization. This article argues that it is not enough to say an organization is hybrid; you need to say how an organization is hybrid, as organizations can mix the characteristics of state and market on s...

Data
The era of hybrid governance is here. More and more organizations occupy a position between public and private ownership. And value is created not through business or public interests alone, but through distinct forms of hybrid governance. National governments are looking to transform their administrative systems to become more business driven. Lik...

In the Netherlands, there is as yet very limited knowledge of what is actually happening with regard to social enterprise. Research is still scarce. Moreover, there also is a lot of conceptual confusion as there is no specific legal form or policy framework yet. Every organisation can call itself a social enterprise, and many do, as the “social ent...

Dit zijn bewonersinitiatieven waarbij ten behoeve van de leefbaarheid ondernemende activiteiten worden ontplooid die vaak innovatief of experimenteel zijn. In een wijkcoöperatie worden een sociale en een bedrijfsmatige manier van werken met elkaar verbonden, bijvoorbeeld door werkgelegenheid te bied...

Citizens and urban policy makers are experimenting with collaborative ways to tackle wicked urban issues, such as today’s sustainability challenges. In this article, we consider one particular way of collaboration in an experimental setting: Urban Living Labs (ULLs). ULLs are understood as spatially embedded sites for the co-creation of knowledge a...

Als geïnstitutionaliseerd vakgebied is de bestuurskunde in Nederland nu ongeveer veertig jaar oud. De Vereniging voor Bestuurskunde is opgericht in 1974; de eerste zelfstandige studierichting begon in Twente in 1976. 40+ is een leeftijd die vaak aanzet tot fundamentele zelfreflectie en soms tot domme dingen. In deze bundel buigen de auteurs zich o...
Article
Full-text available
De stad is in: de oplossingen voor allerlei hedendaagse wereldproblemen worden steeds meer op lokaal niveau gezocht. Het lokaal bestuur krijgt door de decentralisaties meer verantwoordelijkheden en er wordt veel verwacht van de pragmatische vaardigheden van burgemeesters. Ook wordt grote hoop gevestigd op het zelforganiserend vermogen van de stad,...

The Internet has created opportunities for instant and cheap communication, including communication between government and citizens. The interactive capabilities of Web 2.0 in general and social media in particular have turned this communication from a (mostly) one-way stream to an interactive experience. This low-cost, accessible medium has levell...
Chapter
The chapter examines how as a result of processes of privatisation, deregulation and marketization, public services such as waste management have been outsourced to public waste management organisations. As a result, municipal waste services have evolved either to behave like companies through hybrid public waste companies, or to be sold off to the...

Over the last 15 years there have been many experiments with joined-up (also known as whole of) government practices, aimed at horizontal coordination to overcome the fragmentation of vertical governmental structures due to departmentalism and New Public Management. These practices were initiated to address wicked problems and to better interact wi...
Article

The governments of Australia and the Netherlands have to deal with wicked problems, that cut across neat departmental boundaries and exceed the problem-solving capabilities of individual governmental institutions. In this chapter, we discuss how they dealt with two pressing problems (child abuse, immigration and integration) by adopting so-called j...

The purpose of this article is to assess twinning as an innovative experiment in interagency collaboration.

Hybrid organizations mix the characteristics of state, market and civil society. Critics have suggested that such organizations pose severe risks to the public sector, both financially and culturally. However, these assertions are based mostly on theoretical claims or single case studies. No systematic evidence has been collected to support them. T...
Article
Full-text available
In these times of financial austerity and the emergence of wicked problems, traditional Public Administration and New Public Management as government's conventional mechanisms to steer society often fail to produce desired societal outcomes. This has made the governments of many Western nations call for civic engagement hoping this will lead to the...
Article
Full-text available
Citizens have begun to take public matters into their own hands and establish their own communities. They have self-defined rules and norms, separated from what is regularly defined as the public arena but are still included in a more general framework of societal rules. The public sphere in these domains has become privatized, in the sense that ot...

Full-text available
In this thesis, Philip Marcel Karré argues that hybridity can only be fully understood and managed when one considers both sides of the coin, and sees benefits and risks as each other’s flipsides. By analyzing hybrid organizations in the Dutch waste management sector, he develops a perspective on hybridity that can be used by policy makers, profess...

We have a panel to study hybrids in the IRSPM Conference, which is being held at Tampere University, Finland, from 22–24 April 2020. We see that the activity between public, private and third sector spheres is enlarging in size and growing in importance. There is a wonderful group of people involved in organizing the group: Marieke van Genugten, Giuseppe Grossi, Philip Karré,, Ulf Papenfuss and Jarmo Vakkuri. Submit your abstract before 8 November 2019 here: https://events.tuni.fi/irspm2020/panels/p39/

Als geïnstitutionaliseerd vakgebied is de bestuurskunde in Nederland nu ongeveer veertig jaar oud. De Vereniging voor Bestuurskunde is opgericht in 1974; de eerste zelfstandige studierichting begon in Twente in 1976. 40+ is een leeftijd die vaak aanzet tot fundamentele zelfreflectie en soms tot domme dingen. In deze serie buigen wij ons over kernvragen voor het vakgebied. Dient de bestuurskunde zich meer op de praktijk of juist op de pure wetenschap te richten? Is bestuurskunde eigenlijk een eigenstandige discipline of juist een onderdeel van de politicologie, de juridische of de managementwetenschappen? Wat zijn belangrijke ontwikkelingen in de afgelopen jaren en welke verwachtingen zijn er voor de toekomst? In 2015 en 2016 gaan wij hier in een serie artikelen nader op in. Wij hopen dat hierdoor een brede discussie van de grond zal komen over staat en toekomst van de bestuurskunde en nodigen onze lezers van harte uit daaraan mee te doen.
