Symposium to honor SOG member Peter Aucoin
Dalhousie University at Halifax will host a symposium and dinner in honor of Professor Peter Aucoin on November 12-13. Aucoin, a long-time SOG member and Governance contributor, taught at Dalhousie University for nearly forty years before his recent retirement. More details about the symposium and dinner here. Aucoin’s article Administrative Reform in Public Management: Paradigms, Principles, Paradoxes and Pendulums (Governance 3.2, April 1990) has been cited over five hundred times, according to Scholar Google. The article examines the collision of two schools of thought in administrative reform — one rooted in public choice theory, and the other in managerialism. Aucoin was also named to the Order of Canada last year.
