New public governance and meritocracy
AbstractThe aim of this paper is to clarify, in administration and public policy, the concept of new public governance, distinguishing it from other approaches. The literature search performed on the “state of the art”, it is concluded that the scientific studies of governance are associated with the separation of supply and production units of public services and a new form of relationship between the state and the rest of society (Aligica and Tacko, 2012). On the other hand, the scientific studies of governance are also associated with the efficiency of cooperation networks between social and institutional actors (Tavares and Mamede, 2011) in that the state no longer plays the only and not the main role which set the research agenda.
