Sustainable development and Canada : national & international perspectives by Patrick Kyba( )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2020 in English and held by 1,097 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Canada is one of the most beautiful, varied, and inspiring natural environments on earth. Few countries contain such topographical differences as the West Coast, the mountain regions, the prairies, the Arctic, the cityscapes close to the American border, and the eastern forests. The Canadian territory is the second largest in the world, and it borders on three oceans--its fourth border is with the United States, the most powerful economy in the world. This provides Canadians unique access to a large market, but also raises many problems related not only to political and cultural influence, but to transborder pollution. This book investigates the complexities of Canadian environmental policy. The text is split into three sections: the political context in which decisions are made; issue areas in need of engagement; and perspectives on the achievement of sustainable development, which colour the Canadian conceptual landscape. The first section outlines the state of the Canadian environment, the actors and institutions involved in environmental policy formation (and a detailed history of Environment Canada), and the international context of modern decision-making. The second section is issue-specific, including chapters on environmental law, risk management and environmental impact assessment, international treaties and conventions involving Canada, and an overall assessment of Canadian policy. The final section deals with values and theories, from gender issues to environmental ethics. The book serves as a comprehensive introduction that makes explicit recognition of the transnational character of environmental policy formation in the era of globalization, and offers critical insights into the decision-making process
The evolving physiology of government : Canadian public administration in transition by Byron M Sheldrick( )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canadian public administration has provided a rich ground for examining the changing nature of the state. Currents of political change have rippled through the administration of the public sector, often producing significant alterations in our understanding of how best to organize and administer public services. This volume brings together some of the leading Canadian and international scholars of public administration to reflect on these changes and their significance. Providing a historical perspective on public administration in Canada, the volume examines the shift from a traditional model
From bureaucracy to public management : the administrative culture of the government of Canada by O. P Dwivedi( )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2019 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is about the systems of values, traditions, perceptions, and meanings existing in the Canadian federal public service since the First World War. Surveying that history, it considers the conflict of values arising from the attempt to add New Public Management values to older bureaucratic ones. These tensions are looked at from an ethical viewpoint, but also from that of the relationship between ends and means. Are the means proposed really likely to meet the ends proclaimed? Attempts to change a culture from the top down run against daily realities; the interests, training, and experience of all employees, elites, and others. Authors Dwivedi and Gow intend this overview to enable readers to appreciate the complex world of Canada's public servants. A joint publication with The Institute of Public Administration of Canada
Bureaucracy and the alternatives in world perspective by Keith M Henderson( Book )

20 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bureaucracy is a term used both to characterise a particular type of organisational structure (centralised, hierarchic, specialised) and to criticise it (slow, inefficient, cumbersome). The theme of this book is bureaucracy and the alternatives to it in the developing world. The central focus is government bureaucracy (more kindly labelled 'Public Administration') and a full range of options to the status quo, many of them outside the realm of the conventional

Administrative culture in a global context( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides an overview of the administrative challenges facing various nations. While bureaucratic structures among nations appear similar, the methods of conducting government business vary from nation to nation. It is clear, however, that the process of globalization has narrowed the differences in the operationalization of all administrative systems; practices are being changed to comply with international requirements due to liberalization, the WTO, and the pressure brought to bear upon governments by multinational corporations. Is it possible that the twenty-first century could create one universally understood administrative culture? Would this be an imitative and replicative system of public management, as more and more Western values and practices are instituted everywhere? The editors of this volume believe diversity in thought and action is more desirable than the self-proclaimed universal paradigms originating in the West and will ultimately lead to a just and sustainable world."--Jacket
