Since its foundation in 1983, the Politiques et Management Public journal has been devoted to the study of all aspects of the functioning and evolution of public organisations in the broadest possible sense – the State, territorial public bodies, hospital administrations, agencies, public business, franchise holders, etc. The journal’s scope also includes the development and transformation of public policy, whether sector-based or transversal, European, national or local. Politiques et Management Public is aimed at the academic environment but also at a broader public of political, administrative and associative leaders. It is a quarterly publication, produced by the Institut de Management Public. For the journal’s online inauguration, eight issues are available, including four in full text on open access.
