Abstract:Over the past three decades, African countries have been reforming their public sector with a view to improving efficiency, effectiveness, accountability and transparency as part of efforts to improve the delivery of public services. Reform actions have included privatization, public-private partnerships, commercialization and adoption of private sector approaches in managing public organizations. This book, put together by OSSREA (Organization for Social Science Research in Eastern and Southern Africa), reviews measures by nine African countries - Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe, the extent to which the measures have achieved their intended results, as well as factors behind the failure to achieve those results, where this was the case. Contributions by Paulos Chanie, Paschal B. Mihyo, Joshua M. Kivuva, Claudious Chikozho, Matteo Rizzo (Dar es Salaam's public transport), Kassa Teshager Alemu and Shawel Asfaw Yosef (health service governance in Addis Ababa), Abebe Walle Menberu, Leonada Mwagike and Mamkwe Claudia Edward, Muhajir Kachwamba (e-government in Tanzania), Roberts Kabeba Muriisa (university education reform, Uganda), Verena Tandrayen-Ragoobur and Kesseven Padachi, Keene Boikhutso (reforming the organizational structure and performance management system at the University of Botswana), Maxwell Chanakira (telecoms in South Africa), William Muhumuza, and Nicholas Awortwi (local government contracts in Ghana).
