Yesterday's tomorrows: what happened to the future of government?

Professor Hood's study will investigate changes to the way in which UK central government has operated over the past 35 years. By conducting interviews and focus groups with current and former members, and delving into archives and official data sets, this project will examine major transformations such as New Public Management, the development of government information and communications technology, and a new form of spin doctoring. Working with research assistant Ruth Dixon, Professor Hood will seek to uncover whether these developments did alter the state and its capacity, and lead to lower costs and better relations with citizen-customers.
