Issues In Public Policy And Administration In Malaysia  An Institutional Analysis

This book argues that there is nothing inherently stable, persistent or enduring about institutions. By examining the various issues facing the Malaysian bureaucracy and adopting an institutional analysis, this book brings the point that institutions are disposed to change because they are fraught with tension due to the quality of institutions. Using various examples, it explains that such tension and change dynamics can come from institutional resources, the manner in which resources are distributed to different actors, the varying power configurations among institutional actors and the larger political, economic and social environment that institutions operate in.Accordingly, in examining the various concerns of the Malaysian bureaucracy, this book highlights the typologies of institutional change and the inherent tension over resources that exist among actors that makes reform attempts, at times, potentially problematic but not impossible. New concerns in public policy and governance that are yet to be discussed widely in the Malaysian public administration literature are raised, including issues on collaborative governance, public service motivation and representative bureaucracy.
