Fragments in the Ruins

In a world where the human experience is increasingly overshadowed by diversity and danger and which is currently confronting the twin challenges of a global recession and pandemic, this book provides an insight into the fundamental idea of public value which represents the ‘humanisation’ of public policy and practice.

This edited volume brings together a unique set of experts from policy, commerce and academe who, in a series of case studies in the space, energy, tourism and higher education sectors, discuss how public value may be assessed, appreciated and articulated.

The book describes an approach to public value management for organisations working in complex networks. It focuses upon how they can appreciate their wider role and impact on society and accommodate diversity in new institutional structures.
