NCPAG PJPA 2005-3-4: Is there water after privatization? The case of the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System

The study highlights the commonalities and differences of the New Public Administration and the Discourse Theory. New Public Administration was born out of the tumultuous environment of the 60s, while the Discourse Theory was prompted by the hyperreality of the fragmented society in the 90s. Both theories share the belief in and respect for individual's own experience, and dominance of public interest above all values to predicate public action and the rejection of the command-and-control bureaucratic structure in policymaking and implementation. The two theories diverge in their respective formulations of location of public engagements. New Public Administration suggests use of models of task force, matrix, project, terms, devolution, etc. to facilitate client participation in shaping public policy, while the Discourse theory explicates the importance of transforming the bureaucracy into one permeable, situational public energy field.
