Özet

This article highlights the objective of the special issue which is to understand the status of public administration in six profiled countries - Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, United Arab Emirates (UAE), and Turkey - in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). The special issue explores public administration as a concept-the diversity of guiding general principles that determines how governments administer the affairs of state in the context of their governance frameworks-and as praxis-the diversity of public administration structures, procedures and practice, and reform initiatives. It is evident that the countries profiled have adopted a mode of public administration and governance that mirrors its history, and its cultural, geo-political, socio-economic, and conflictive environments. In this context, the editors hope that the articles presented in this special issue will contribute to advancing the public administration literature in MENA.
