Court Management: A Young Field of Public Management
Court management as a field of research was the result of several factors, for example the debate on New Public Management (NPM) or the activities of the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ). The Permanent Study Group (PSG) XVIII justice and court administration began its activities in 2012. The participants have so far been researchers and practitioners from courts and from judicial administrations. This mix has proved to be interesting and there was a lot of successful knowledge sharing. The strategy for PSG XVIII will be to continue to combine forces with established groups and networks in Europe and beyond.
