Mapping the State: Old and New Explanatory Perspectives

Panel Code: 
RC27.02
Convenor: 
Prof. Philippe Bezes 

This panel aims to study formal changes in central government organizations such as ministries and agencies. It seeks to bring together papers with (i) a theoretical objective to explain the inertia and dynamics in such formal changes and/or (ii) with a methodological contribution regarding how to map the state, assess and measure inertia and change in the context of central government organizations etc. and/or (iii) an empirical objective to analyze these formal changes for single countries, across countries, and over time. We welcome papers on single case studies as much as quantitative analyses or mixed-method designs.
