Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue is entitled 'Public Governance and Administration for Sustainable Development in the Post-Covid-19 Era.' By Governance, we mean a concept, practice or theory that is bigger than Governing, Government and Governability. By Sustainable Development, we mean in all aspects of policy areas, disciplines, approaches, ideologies and practices, and at all levels of government: local, regional, national and global. By placing Public Governance and Sustainable Development side by side, we seek to provide a stage for the conceptualization, exploration and empirical examination of the theoretical, normative and practical relationship between Public Governance and Sustainable Development, of how Public Governance impacts Sustainable Development and of how Sustainable Development impacts Public Governance. The main novelty is identifying the bridges, contradictions and relationships between these two founding concepts, based on the assumption that the world is not identical to what it was before the Covid-19 outbreak. By focusing on the post-Covid-19 era, we seek to expand the discource of prior research on the relationship between Public Governance and Sustainable Development. To do so, we will use the cutting edge insight, knowledge, empirical and analytical research, experience and wisdom that developed during the Covid-19 outbreak and that might have a positive impact on society, policy makers and academics who are stepping into the post-Covid-19 era.
