(Most of the publications in this section were written while I was a researcher at the Institute of Public Governance of Canada. IPAC is dedicated to improvement of state “service.” These publications were also written before I’d become familiar with voluntary governance theory. Consequently, they will not reflect those values, however, they are revealing in providing a window into both the perception of a growing crisis of state governance in the mainstream public administration literature and the tendency in that literature toward ever more decentred and competitive governance solutions. My article in the Libertarian Standard, cited above, would be interesting to consult in regards to such development.)
