Sample text

In an attempt to elaborate on the institutional context of complex interaction processes, network theoreticians are inspired by inter-organizational theory (Levine and White, 1961; Negandhi, 1975; Aldrich, 1979). This theory states that in order to survive, an organization requires resources from other organizations. These organizations engage in exchange relations with one another in such a manner that a network of mutually dependent actors emerges. Network theory combines a structural view of plurality (many actors, divided resources) with a cognitive view of plurality (actors have different frames and see problems differently).

However, these branches of literature have more and more begun to be imported and utilized in public administration. Scharpf (1997), for instance, uses the rational choice literature to characterize strategy patterns in decision-making for his model which includes both actor variables and structure variables. The game types, such as the prisoner’s dilemma and chicken and assurance games, could be considered as emergent strategy patterns that arise out of the strategic behaviour of individual agents without external coordination.

Although many people were able to provide perfect explanations afterwards, the collapse did come as quite a surprise to most observers. Thus, it can be concluded that dynamics arise out of the dependency and connectivity of separate agents within a system. A system may be in a position of equilibrium or in a position far from equilibrium in which it is sensitive to change. Stability and change for a system is achieved through feedback mechanisms that stabilize or disturb systems. 2 Attention to Non-linear Dynamics in Public Administration System ideas in public administration can be traced back a long time, as shown in the example in the previous section.
