Public Administration houses the implementation of government policy and academic discipline that studies this implementation and that prepares civil servants for this work. As a field of inquiry with a diverse scope, its fundamental goal… is to advance management and policies so that government can function properly.

Public Administration is centrally concerned with the organization of government policies and programmes as well as the behavior of officials formally responsible for their conduct.

As an academic field, public administration draws heavily on Political Science and Administrative Law.

Public Administration Theory is the domain in which discussions of the meaning and purpose of government, the role of bureaucracy in supporting democratic governments, budgets, governance, and public affairs take place. In recent years, public administration theory has periodically connoted a heavy orientation toward critical theory and postmodern philosophical notions of government, governance, and power. However, many public administration scholars support a classic definition of the term emphasizing constitutionality, public service, bureaucratic forms of organization, and hierarchical government
