Chapter 19: The slow pace of public administration reform in Spain
This chapter examines the COCOPS survey on public administration managers for Spain. Spain seems to be a unique case among the rest of the COCOPS countries since it is the only one where more public managers perceive the public administration system has worsened than those who perceive it has improved over the past five years, particularly as regards social cohesion and citizen participation. We argue the slow implementation of public administration reform, the radical austerity policies implemented by the government since the crisis, and a change of government may help explain why it is that Spanish public managers perceive much reform to be ineffectual or slow in coming.
