The institutionalized cabinet : governing the Western Provinces by Christopher J. C Dunn( )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 1,363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this systematic investigation of how central executives in western Canadian provinces actually function, Christopher Dunn describes the evolution of cabinet decision making from a relatively uncoordinated structure into the institutionalized (or structured) cabinet of the postwar era." "Dunn investigates the factors that led to the initiation and persistence of institutionalized cabinets in the governments of T.C. Douglas in Saskatchewan, Duff Roblin and Walter Weir in Manitoba, and W.R. Bennett in British Columbia. He describes the transition from unaided central executive structures to those that are more structured, collegial, and prone to emphasize planning and coordination. He also examines how the premier's role has expanded from simply choosing cabinets to reorganizing their structure and decision-making processes." "The institutionalization of provincial cabinets has had major effects on both political actors and functions in the three provinces studied. Dunn shows that cabinet structure has changed, and been changed by, power relations within the cabinet."--Jacket
Between colliding worlds : the ambiguous existence of government agencies for aboriginal and women's policy by Jonathan Malloy( )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 1,332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jonathan Malloy's Between Colliding Worlds examines the relationship between governments and external activists through a comparative study of Australian and Canadian policy units dedicated to aboriginal and women's issues. Malloy identifies these units - or 'special policy agencies' - as sitting on the boundary between the world of permanent public servants and that of collective social movements working for broad social and political change. These agencies at once represent the interests of social movements to government while simultaneously managing relations with social movements on behalf of government, and thus operate in a state of permanent ambiguity." "Drawing on a wide range of sources, including in-depth interviews with public servants and external activists, Malloy argues convincingly that special policy agencies, despite - or because of - their ambiguous relationships to different communities, make critical contributions to governance."--Résumé de l'éditeur

The National Research Council in the innovation policy era : changing hierarchies, networks and markets by G. Bruce Doern( )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 1,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this first in-depth examination of the governance of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) in over twenty-five years, G. Bruce Doern and Richard Levesque show how the agency's history is interwoven with the evolution of Canada's economic and industrial development and with the fostering of science at Canada's universities, in industry, and within the federal government. Using a policy and institutional approach, the authors demonstrate the ways in which the NRC has had to simultaneously absorb significant budgetary and personnel cuts and become, in its own structure and operations, an innovating institution that helps support and facilitate an innovating Canadian economy - one increasingly characterized by knowledge-based industries. By reconfiguring itself in terms of its institutional mix of hierarchies, networks, and markets, the NRC has had to confront and change its own traditions, yet maintain itself as a complex government agency that still values research for its own sake as a public good
