METHODOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF THE DEMOCRATIZATION OF PUBLIC GOVERNANCE
Keywords:methodology, public governance, democratization, citiziens participation, theoretical argumentation.
The methodology of public governance has only been analysed recently. The
methodology of public governance consists of a collection of concepts, ideas,
reforms, degrees and other problems of theory. The role of methodology is important
in the field as applied, practical and interdisciplinary as public governance. The
study analyses how public administration theory developed at the end of the
twentieth and at the start of the twenty-first century. The article examines the
theories of public sector practice, such as theories on public organization behaviour,
public management, and public policy implementation in a global environment.
Theories on bureaucratic politics seek to explain how the politics–administration
dichotomy is transforming from the traditional theoretical framework to the new
democratic systematic framework and to a new understanding of public governance
democratization, which is central in today’s organizational theory. The primary issue
addressed in the article is the development of public administration and governance
theory in the period of globalization and modernization, and changes in the
definition of the role of theory in public governance.
