Watchful Eyes, Oversight Explosions and Fire Alarms? Cross-National Perspectives on Control over Government Workshop

CARR, LSE
December 2002

Is there are general 'audit explosion' over public services taking place worldwide? Fifteen scholars from eight countries (Australia, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, UK, USA) met to explore how controls over government had developed over a generation in three policy sectors - prisons, universities and the higher civil service. Prisons and universities show markedly different patterns, with the higher civil service somewhere in the middle. The workshop is the third in a series and it will result in a book edited by Christopher Hood, Oliver James, Guy Peters and Colin Scott, to be published by Edward Elgar next year.
