Abstract

This article provides a greater understanding of hybrid public administration. Different generations of public sector reforms have accentuated hybrid and complex features of public organizations, resulting in multiple-layer structural and cultural features. The article covers the following research questions: 1 how can we interpret the increasing tendency towards hybrid administration in terms of a transformative approach; 2 how is hybrid administration developing out of attempts to balance NPM and post-NPM?; and 3 how can we understand the major mechanisms producing hybridity in a modern reform? The case we focus on is the reform of the Norwegian welfare administration.
