Research Interests

In addition to the general topics of public policy and public administration I have completed projects exploring the impact of devolution on the UK's civil services and a series of projects exploring intergovernmental and multi level government developments in the UK, EU and further afield. Between 2002 and 2011 I was a member of the International Institute of Administrative Sciences working Group on Global Governance. In November 2001 I delivered a speech at the United Nations General Assembly on the future of public administration in the English speaking world and this has been followed up ever since with work exploring these issues.

I have published widely in these fields.

Research Supervision

I have supervised a large number of successful PhDs in the following fields:

  • Europeanization and EU reform;
  • British central and local government modernization;
  • The introduction and political impact of Sharia law in India;
  • Policy transfer and technology transfer;
  • International developments in HR reform in public services;
  • Agencification and privatisation in central government;
  • A number of comparative policy and public sector management studies concerned with Malaysia, Italy, the EU, US and others. 

I welcome applications in public administration and comparative public policy.
