The Paradigm of Public Administration and its Development in Conditions of State Formation and Changes
Purpose: The main purpose of this article is to study the processes of public administration and determine which concept of public administration should be taken as a basis. The development of the paradigm of public administration and its best practices is considered. Design/Methodology/Approach: The study is based on a comprehensive approach to study the evolution of paradigms of public administration and the peculiarities of their application. It is noted that "directive public administration" (DPA), "new public management" (NPM), and "Good Governance" (GG) are progressive concepts for their time. This evolution is the development of public administration as a subsystem of the social system "state". Findings: Being based on the analysis, the author proposed an improved model of transition from directive public administration through new public management to good governance (DPA - NPM - GG). This makes it possible to see the evolution of the public administration paradigm, as well as to identify the positive aspects of each of the concepts used in the public administration paradigm. This makes it possible to see the evolution of the public administration paradigm, as well as to identify the positive aspects of each of the concepts used in the public administration paradigm. Practical Implications: As the main conclusion, it is noted that there is an opportunity for Ukraine to go quickly through the path of NPM and immediately begin to implement the concept of GG in public administration in modern conditions of state formation. It is espessialy important in the situation of the European and Euro-Atlantic integration of Ukraine. Originality/Value: The research findings demonstrate that the use of advanced paradigms can significantly increase the efficiency of public administration and make it "human-oriented", as most of the provisions of the GG put the interaction of government and the public in the first place.
