Business Government relations and social enterprises – Lessons and Experiences from South-Eastern Europe
Editors: Bogdan Berceanu, Lucica Matei, Marco Meneguzzo, Cristina Mititelu
This book addresses a problem of great scientific and practical interest for South-Eastern
European countries, related to the relationship of “business-government” and the role of social enterprises. The first part focuses on the analysis upon the trends within the processes of modernization and development of public administration systems at European level. The five contributions refer to the reference theoretical background of comparative public administration, which represent a prior research axis of EGPA-GEAP and PSGs (Permanent Study Groups), which adopt for some years this thematic, especially the book of G. Bouckaert and C. Pollitt regarding the comparative analysis of public management reforms (strategic directions and intervention domains). The second part of the work deals with the “Business-government relationship” (BGR) from a point of view that integrates innovative and original traditional BGR’s perspective, focused on the relationship between profit-oriented private companies, financial intermediaries and national and local government, with the relationship between the government and the non-profit sector.
