Welcome to NS World
A New Synthesis of Public Administration
The New Synthesis (NS) Initiative is an exploratory project dedicated to preparing government for the challenges of serving in the post-industrial era. The project combines practical lessons from the public sector, multi-disciplinary academic findings, and an understanding of the current realities of government to create a theoretical framework designed to support practitioners in their mission.
Developed in partnership with academics and practitioners from different countries, different systems and different historical, economic and cultural contexts, the NS Initiative is a collaborative effort to bridge the widening gap between theory and practice through preparing government for the challenges of serving in the 21st century.
