The Role of the Public Bureaucracy in Policy Implementation in Five ASEAN Countries edited by Jon Quah
The Role of the Public Bureaucracy in Policy Implementation in Five ASEAN Countries ( Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam) edited by Jon Quah in Singapore will be published by Cambridge University Press in December of 2015.
It highlights the importance of the policy context, especially the commitment of the government in allocating the necessary resources and the support of the implementers, as well as the public bureaucracy's effectiveness, as the critical factors responsible for effective policy implementation. The comparative analysis shows that the public bureaucracies in Singapore and Malaysia are more effective in policy implementation than their counterparts in Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam because of their favourable policy contexts and higher level of organizational effectiveness.
