Title: Beryl Radin Receives Lifetime Achievement Award in Public Management

McCourt School Professor Beryl Radin is the recipient of the 2014 Routledge Award from the International Research Society for Public Management (IRSPM). The award recognizes Radin for her public service and excellence in public management research topics such as performance indicators, administrative reform, accountability, and leadership. Radin received the award in April at the 18th Annual IRSPM Conference at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.

“I am especially honored because I am the first American to receive this award,” said Professor Beryl Radin. “While much of my work focused on the United States, I have spent a fair amount of time over the past decade or two looking at public management issues around the globe. My international work has sharpened my insights about the diverse ways that structure, culture, and practice mediate implementation.”

Radin joined the faculty at the McCourt School of Public Policy in January 2012 and is the editor of a Georgetown University Press book series entitled “Public Management and Change.” She is a fellow at the National Academy of Public Administration. Radin previously served as a scholar in residence in the Department of Public Administration and Policy at American University and also was a member of the faculty at the State University of New York at Albany, the University of Southern California, and the LBJ School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin. In 2012, Radin received the John Gaus Award from the American Political Science Association for career achievement.
