Abstract

This article explores five ‘challenges’ for Southern European administrative systems (Portugal, Spain, Italy and Greece). The challenges identified are: the evolving and more and more asymmetric European governance, the apparent absence of a dominant administrative paradigm, the potentially irreversible crisis of the European welfare state, the usability of knowledge in the field of strategic management, the (de-)motivation of European public servants. Each challenge is discussed and possible ways forward outlined.
