    Gender and public service: a case study of Mumbai1998In: International Journal of Public Sector Management, ISSN 0951-3558, E-ISSN 1758-6666, Vol. 11, no 2/3, p. 188-200Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper considers the role of gender in urban governance, taking Mumbai (formerly Bombay) in India as case study. Findings are presented from a research programme involving both female and male politicians and administrators in order to explore the ways in which women and men undertake the duties of public office. In attempting to take account of the historical traditions of Indian local governance, in the current post-colonial context, characterized not simply by difference, division and hierarchy but also by tolerance, diversity, locality and collective values, it is argued: first that women are held in high regard, seen as competent, fair and flexible in their dealings with others; and second that women's increasing presence may be bringing enhanced levels of respectability to local governance.

    Changed governance of public sector organisations: Err:5092011In: International Journal of Public Sector Management, ISSN 0951-3558, E-ISSN 1758-6666, Vol. 24, no 3, p. 177-186Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – Effects of NPM in professional work are often discussed on an overriding level, and professionals' own experiences of their working conditions in their specific work contexts have been less discussed (Hasselbladh et al. and Liljegren). In an attempt to consider this concern, this paper seeks to focus on individual professionals, exemplified by teachers and nurses, and their experiences of intra-professional relations, i.e. teachers' relations with other teachers and nurses' relations with other nurses. Design/methodology/approach – Applying a theoretical framework on professions and professional work, the aim is to discuss the meaning of intra-professional relations, and how NPM-influenced changes in the organisation of work affect these relations. Moreover, possible effects of the organisational changes for the professionals will be discussed. It is argued that intra-professional relations are essential for professionals; at the same time the cases discussed illuminate how changes in the organisation of work influence intra-professional relations, in ways that highlight the tension between profession and organisation. Findings – The findings can be seen as an illustration of consequences of the adoption of NPM-influenced governance ideals; this paper sees the organisational changes as deriving from the managements' focus on “the customer in centre of attention”, in the form of interdisciplinary work teams and TAS. Originality/value – The paper shows that, through investigating how individual professionals experience their work, consequences of NPM-related governance changes are unveiled.
