    Program Overview

Saturday, May 25, 2019            11:00 - 12:30

Panel: Public Value as a Guiding Principle for Governance 
Room G3 Ground Floor
Related to Panel: Public Value as a Guiding Principle for Governance
WG Programme Coordinators:
Julia Dahlvik, University of Applied Science FH Campus Wien, Vienna, Austria
Michal Sedlacko, University of Applied Science FH Campus Wien, Vienna, Austria
The aim of the panel is to create exchange amongst researchers and practitioners on the "new” public value paradigm in administration and governance, its implications and challenges on different levels.

Social wealth and the wellbeing of the individual have many sources, amongst them public services, contributions of private households, and also civil society and private companies as well as services related to public goods. Public value represents a public administration paradigm and a governance approach, which focuses on the collective aim of public value and processes for reaching this aim, and which highlights the role of the state in these processes. The focus is placed on civil society and the relationship between citizens and the state, which were neglected in the New Public Management approach. Citizens are no longer conceived as passive recipients or consumers, but are supposed to (have the possibility to) participate in public value, generating political processes in diverse ways and making active contributions. Public Value Management can be understood as a reaction of neoliberal deficits of New Public Management, since public managers also play an active role in this perspective. Public managers’ tasks now include the steering of networks of deliberation and service provision and the maintenance of the overall system capacity. Public value orientation aims at strengthening the public sphere and at a fair distribution of goods and services, as well as at developing mechanisms that enable deliberation about values and value preferences.
 
Although the public value concepts were developed without explicit connection to discourses on sustainability, ecological economy or political ecology, there are links to topics such as distribution equality within and beyond generations, quality of life and ecological sustainability. One implementation approach is thus an orientation of politics between absolute planetarian borders and humane, social minimum standards. The role of the public value approach is not only to define and create concrete values, but also to delimit the area of environmentally safe and socially just values with these two absolute borders in order to create an ecologically sustainable and fair society. Such a public value orientation of the state, in which participatory processes of value definition are combined with socio-ecological aims, is also crucial for the freedom to think of new forms of society and economy.
