25th and 26th June 2012

SRH Hochschule Berlin (Germany)

One key element of public sector reforms worldwide has been strengthening the entrepreneurial way of public service delivery. Agencyfication, devolution, public-private partnerships and privatization may serve as examples. Entrepreneurship is seen by the promoters of this idea as an appropriate way of introducing entrepreneurial spirit and innovations for enhancing the impact of public policies and increasing the efficiency of governments and public administrations. Connected with this effectiveness and efficiency drive is the expectation that the entrepreneurial mode of public service deliveries transforms public sector entities into more flexible entities which are more responsive to their constituencies? (and taxpayers?) needs.

We are inviting empirical, quantitative, theoretical, and qualitative papers focusing on the conference topic "Entrepreneurship in the Public Sector.: Sub-topics include:

  • National and international comparative studies on entrepreneurship in the public sector
  • Entrepreneurship in Public Service Networks
  • Performance of entrepreneurial solutions of public service delivery
  • Public enterprises instead of state and municipal administrations?
  • Outcome and impact of entrepreneurial modes on public policies
  • Human Resource Management and Public Service Motivation in entrepreneurial public sector agencies
  • Entrepreneurial solutions as an innovation-driver?
  • Accounting and accountability of entrepreneurial public sector entities
  • Role of the citizens in an enterprising public sector
  • Open innovation and entrepreneurship in the public sector
  • Re-inventing Weber as the better solution?
  • Social enterprises as the non-profit sector response to an enterprising public sector?
