Street-level bureaucracy research has grown into a scholarly theme of its own. It has revealed that teachers, health workers and other public officials working in direct contact with individual citizens, fulfill their tasks in scanty circumstances. Resources are low while expectations are high and come from many sides. Public managers and political authorities, as well as demanding clients and a watching public are holding these street-level bureaucrats accountable. How do they cope? How do work circumstances, but also their personal motivations, matter? If street-level bureaucrats in fact are co-makers of public policies, what does this mean? Not in the least, if street-level bureaucrats practise accountability beyond formal hierarchy, what does this imply for organizing alternative forms of control?

Exploring these questions is the aim of this conference. The topic is inspired by a new book, the Research Handbook of Street-Level Bureaucracy: The Ground Floor of Government in Context, edited by Peter Hupe and published by Edward Elgar.

Conference themes
Three keynote speakers have been invited to reflect on a particular theme suggested to them and to do so from the perspective of insights they selected from the handbook.
