Philippine Public Administration: From Classical, to New Public Administration, to New Public Management

Nestor N. Pilar


This article asserts that there is really a Philippine Public Administration. It chronicles the development of the study and practice of public administration in the country as it tries to compare the changing nature of public administration from Classical, to New Public Administration, and to New Public Management. The article closes with a challenge to PA academics and practitioners as they follow and participate with the trends and streams of public administration and governance in a complex environment – not only in government, but also in business and the community.
