The New Synthesis project is an international partnership of institutions and individuals who are dedicated to advancing the study and practice of public administration.

New Synthesis

I was part of the Dutch delegation of several of the round tables of the New Synthesis Project, established by Jocelyne Bourgon. During the round tables, we aimed at developing strategies civil servants can use in their daily practice to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

One of our conclusions was that the gap that has developed between public management research and practice should be closed. We give some recommendations of how this could be done in this discussion paper, which we presented at the 2011 IRSPM.
