Example text

The British example offers a straightforward case study of how this type of bureaucratic formation has changed since the 1970s. Burnham and Horton (2013) describe three elements of ‘traditional’ public administration: that politics and political decision-making is separate from administrative work; that this administration was organized hierarchically, based on aptitude and merit, rather than personal connections, wealth or other forms of influence; and, finally, that this administration would have permanence, recruited for life and exempt from the electoral cycle that inevitably leads to politicians’ limited time in office (Rush and Giddings 2011).

The final sentence suggests the imperative on the individual to see the self as a project to be created and developed, rather than having identity as a given product of social positions and structures of gender, class, ethnicity and sexuality. The set of writers associated with the individualisation thesis can be contrasted and complemented by exploring the continued legacy of social structures in how people think of themselves. In particular, this project, of understanding how social institutions and their attendant technologies produce individual forms of identity has been at the core of one branch of the study of cultural policy that emerged from some of the debates in cultural studies that covered very similar territory to questions of modernity (Lewis and Miller 2003).

Bevir and Rhodes (2003) and Bevir (2010) have attempted to ‘decentre’ governance by placing it within specific party and political traditions. In this reading, governance is a constructed concept that owes much to the stories that individuals tell about the dilemmas facing government in modernity and how they, as policymakers, are responding.
