Design Structure and Effective Governance

*Some Open Access*

Governance provides discussion of executive politics, public policy, administration, and the organization of the state. It emphasizes peer-reviewed articles that take an international or comparative approach to public policy and administration.

The Journal of Organization Design is the intellectual home of organization design thinking.
