The Problem-Solving Capacity of the Modern State: Governance Challenges and Administrative Capacities
Editors: Martin Lodge (London School of Economics) & Kai Wegrich (Hertie School of Governance)


The early 21st century has presented considerable challenges to the problem-solving capacity of the contemporary state in the industrialised world. Among the many uncertainties, it is the cumulative challenge of fiscal austerity, demographic developments, and climate change that presents the key test. Debates abound regarding the states ability to address these and other problems given increasingly dispersed forms of governing and institutional vulnerabilities.

This volume advances these debates, first, by moving towards a cross-sectoral perspective that takes into account the cumulative nature of the contemporary challenge to governance focusing on the key governance areas of infrastructure, sustainability, social welfare, and social integration; second, by considering innovations that have sought to add problem-solving capacity; and third, by exploring the kind of administrative capacities (delivery, regulatory, coordination, and analytical) required to encourage and sustain innovative problem-solving. This volume, the second in a series of annual editions tackling different aspects of governance-introduces a framework for understanding the four administrative capacities that are central to any attempt at problem-solving and how they enable the policy instruments of the state to have their intended effect. It features chapters that focus on the way in which these capacities have become stretched and how they have been adjusted; the way in which different states have addressed particular governance challenges , with particular attention paid to the required administrative capacities; and, finally, types of governance capacities that lie outside the boundaries of the state.
