Value and Virtue in Public Administration by Michiel S. de Vries Value and Virtue in Public Administration, Paperback (October 2011)

A multidisciplinary analysis of the role of values and virtue in public administration, this book calls for a rediscovery of virtue. It explores ways of enabling the public sector to balance the values that are presently dominant with classic values such as accountability, representation, equality, neutrality, transparency and public interest.

Importance of Neglect in Policy-Making by Michiel S. de Vries Importance of Neglect in Policy-Making, Hardback (January 2010)

De Vries argues that it is possible to explain when and in what direction policy change is likely to occur. He argues that what is neglected at present is likely to become dominant in policies of the near future. With the birth of a new policy generation a convergence towards meeting the dominant value of that generation will become evident.
