J W (Jim) Björkman
Educated in political science at the University of Minnesota (BA summa cum laude 1966) and Yale University (MPhil 1969: PhD 1976), I am Professor of Public Policy and Administration at the Institute of Social Studies, The Hague, as well as Professor of Public Administration and Development at Leiden University. I serve annually as Visiting Professor at the International Centre for the Promotion of Enterprise in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and at the University of Namibia in Windhoek, Namibia. Previously faculty member at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Executive Director of the International Institute of Comparative Government in Lausanne, Switzerland, I have also held appointments in Sweden (University of Link÷ping), England (University of Essex), Pakistan (Institute of Development Economics), India (Institute of Economic Growth) as well as at Yale University. During 1987-1990 I was Director of the American Studies Research Centre, Hyderabad, India, while conducting a major comparative study of national health policies and politics in South Asia. During the 1990s I held elective office in several research sections of the International Political Science Association (Secretary and Vice-chair of the Comparative Health Policy Study Group; Board Member of the reconstituted Research Committee on Comparative Health Policy; Board Member and Co-Vice-chair of the Research Committee on Public Bureaucracies in Developing Societies). And during 1996-1999 the Board of Trustees of the Institute of Social Studies appointed me Deputy Rector on its three-member Executive Board.
Funded by the Indo-Dutch Program for Alternatives in Development during the past four years, I recently completed a manuscript on the impact of technocracy on the implementation of public policy. My previous books include Federal-State Health Policies and Impacts (1978), The Politics of Administrative Alienation in India's Rural Development Programs (1979), Changing Division of Labor in South Asia: Women and Men in Society, Economy and Politics (1986), Fundamentalism, Revivalists and Violence in South Asia (1987), Controlling Medical Professionals: The Comparative Politics of Health Governance (1988), Top Policy Makers in India: Cabinet Ministers and Their Civil Service Advisors (1994), Health Policy Reform, National Schemes and Globalization (1997) and Health Policy: International Library of Public Policy (1998). To date, I have published approximately sixty articles and chapters in journals and/or edited volumes on comparative methodology, South Asian social policies, comparative health planning and implementations, 'Panchayati Raj' (democratic decentralization in India), professionalism in the welfare state, accountability in health care, public policy, development administration, party/government relations, and ethno-political issues.
Since my days as a student activist, I have been intrigued by the chronic gap between proclamation and implementation, between intent and result, between promise and performance. Although this dilemma characterizes all societies, it is particularly problematic for those that are not well endowed with skills and resources. While fatalists assert that one cannot change the resource base of an economy nor reverse history, one can reshape how factors are organized and how they are operationalized. Therein lies my enduring concern for development administration and the administration of development.
DONALD L. HOROWITZ
"Donald L. Horowitz (Ph.D., Harvard), is the James B. Duke Professor of Law and Political Science at Duke University. Professor Horowitz has written widely on the legal process, government lawyers, ethnic politics, and military coups.

"He has also published articles on ethnic conflict in Asia and Africa in such journals as World Politics, Comparative Politics, the Journal of Interdisciplinary History, the Annals, and Comparative Studies in Society and History and served on the boards of several journals dealing with ethnicity and democracy as well as on the boards of the Project on Ethnic Relations and of the Center for Development Studies in Bonn.
"Professor Horowitz has held fellowships and grants from the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation, the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the Social Science Research Council, the Woodrow Wilson Center, the U.S. Institute of Peace, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Rockefeller Foundation, the National Humanities Center, and the Pacific Basin Research Center.
"His book Ethnic Groups in Conflict was published in 1985 and was selected as an outstanding academic book by Choice magazine. He was a Visiting Fellow of Wolfson College, Cambridge, in 1988 and of the Law Faculty at the University of Canterbury, in New Zealand, in 1995-96. His book, A Democratic South Africa? Constitutional Engineering in a Divided Society, published in 1991, won the 1992 Ralph J. Bunche Award of the American Political Science Association for the best book on the politics of ethnic and cultural pluralism. An edited volume, Immigrants in Two Democracies: French and American Experience, appeared in 1992.
"His recently-completed book, The Deadly Ethnic Riot, a comparative exploration of the role of reason and emotion in violent events, will be published by the University of California Press this fall.

He is currently engaged in studies of constitutional design for divided societies and has recently returned from his fourth recent field trip to Indonesia."
IMTIAZ HUSSAIN HUSSAIN
Received my Ph.D. from University of Pennsylvania in political science in 1989 (majoring in International Relations, with minor fields in Comparative Politics and West Europe), following a dual Master's in Ohio University, 1983 (one in International Relations, with a concentration on Development Studies, and the other in Modern West European History), and my bachelor's in International Affairs in 1981.
Taught at Philadelphia Unviersity for 4 years (1990-94) before receiving a North American Fellow award to come to Mexico to research NAFTA's dispute settlement mechanisms (1994-96). This was offered by CIDE, the Mexican government-sponsored think-tank on research and teaching of economics. My arrival there coincided with the inauguration of the undergraduate program in International Relations (1996), for which I was asked to offer my teaching experiences in shaping the courses. Two years of doing that found me shifting to Universidad IberoAmericana, where also a new department of International Studies was opened (1998), and for which I was also invited to help prepare the programs and offer courses in English.
In addition to building programs in Mexico City, I have had several articles (mostly in Spanish) and working documents (mostly in English) published, covering largely NAFTA's dispute settlement, comparisons with the European Union, the Westphalian experiences of Asia and Africa, genocide, health development, and Mexican political transformation as a specific case of Latin transformation. Teaching 5 courses each semester, I haven't had the chance to convert many of these research pursuits into books, but complete monographs on NAFTA dispute settlement and West European agricultural integration are currently under review or revision.
In addition to receiving a teaching award at the University of Pennsylvania as a graduate student, I got three more here as a full-time teacher. And I am a frequent participant in many professional conferences. I am from Bangaldesh, where my interest in international relations developed as a journalist covering the war in 1971 (and subsequently the revolution in Iran 1978-79).

JAN MICHIEL OTTO
Family name: Otto, first name: Jan Michiel; full name : Jan Michiel
Birth: 3 april 1952 at Utrecht, Netherlands
I am professor of Law and Administration in Developing Countries at Leiden University, and also director of its Van Vollenhoven Institute for Law and Administration in Non-Western Countries. My current interests include the following issues:
My main regional interests include Indonesia and Egypt, where I spent
most of my field research years, together with my wife Marileen who is an
anthropologist, in various rural and urban settings. Besides, through
colleagues and projects at the Van Vollenhoven Institute I have become
involved in a.o. China and South Africa.
Prof Andrew Harding at SOAS (London) and I are general editors of the London-Leiden Series on Law, Administration and Development, published by Kluwer Law International.
FRED W. RIGGS
Professor Emeritus (Ph.D., Columbia, 1948). Trained in international relations and Chinese philosophy, Fred Riggs subsequently specialized in comparative and development administration and became interested in the conceptual and terminological problems involved in writing about phenomena not recognized in conventional Western social science vocabularies. Under the auspices of UNESCO and the International Social Science Council, he organized an interdisciplinary committee that developed a new "onomantic" (i.e, naming or non-semantic) framework that uses hypertext technology on the WWW and e-mail listservs to disseminate glossaries for interactive use on a global multi-lingual basis.
Recently, he has also developed a neo-institutional comparative framework for understanding political and administrative problems usually ignored by comparativists. In this context, he points to the political role played by public bureaucracies, including military officers, in all countries, including the United States, but especially in the third world. When the ordinary political institutions of democratic government are weak and ineffectual, he argues that bureaucrats, led by military officers, often seize power and establish bureaucratic authoritarianism. Among the constitutional democracies of the third world, he thinks that those based on the American presidentialist model rooted in the separation of powers are the most fragile and likely to collapse, whereas those grounded in parliamentarism have better prospects for survival. He has explained why the U. S., as the only notable exception to this rule, has sustained its presidentialist constitutional system for more than two centuries.
Since retiring from teaching, he has been promoting an understanding of these issues through numerous papers and publications, plus the launching of a global network of concerned scholars and practitioners: the Committee on Viable Constitutionalism COVICO . Drafts and more details can be found on his Home Page Home Page He has recently focused his energy on the increased violence of ethnic nationalism around the world and the need for viable constitutional democracy in order to replace civil war with non-violent politics. He has organized a global network for liaison officers of the major groups, organizations, and committees promoting research on ethnic problems--and has created a Web site to support this activity. Most recently, he has been studying "globalization" as a contemporary process with far-reaching causes and consequences, especially in relation to the problems of democratization as it evolves when military authoritarianism or one-party dictatorship collapses -- see: DEMOGLO .
Local Government Advisor for a technical assistance project in Indonesia which is supported by the German Agency for Technical Cooperation (GTZ) on behalf of the German Government. The "Suppport for Decentralisation Measures" (SfDM) project aims at improving the regulatory framework for local governance and at making policy-making processes relating to local governance more participatory, transparent and inclusive. Until recently, he was teamleader of a GTZ/USAID supported study (Capacity Building Needs Assessment for Local Governments and Legislatures) which looked at capacity building needs in view of the ongoing decentralisation policy. Details can be found at the SfDM website at www.gtzsfdm.or.id
Before joining GTZ, Rainer worked as a Programme Officer for UNDP (Lagos, Nigeria), and as Human Resource Development Advisor for the Indonesian National Institute for Public Administration (Jakarta). He is co-founder of CiptaNet International, a network of professionals from Australia, Indonesia and Europe working on public sector reform, human resources management and financial management (see details at www.ciptanet.com). He also lectured at the Political Science Department of the Freie Universitt Berlin, and is member of the International New Public Management Network.
Holding Masters degrees in Political Science and Public Administration, his publications include "Public Administration in Indonesia" (Melbourne: Montech Pty 1995); "Political and Administrative Reforms in Indonesia: New Perspectives for the 1990s?", in: Internationales Asienforum (International Quarterly for Asian Studies), Vol. 28 (1997) No. 2-3, pp. 195-209; "Indonesian Administrative Tradition"; in: International Encyclopedia of Public Policy and Administration (IEPP), ed. by Jay M. Shafritz, Boulder (Col.): Westview Press 1997; "Government Reforms in Developing Countries: The case of Indonesia"; in: The Indian Journal of Public Administration Vol. XLIII (1997) No. 2, pp. 181-208; "Management Training in Indonesian Public Enterprises - Concepts and Approaches"; in: Annals of Public and Cooperative Economics (Liege) Vol. 67 (1996) 2, pp. 165-192; and "Schwachstellen und Ansatzpunkte der Reform ÷ffentlicher Unternehmen in Entwicklungslndern" (The Reform of Public Enterprises in Developing Countries); in: Zeitschrift fr ÷ffentliche und gemeinntzige Unternehmen (Beiheft 13), Baden-Baden.
Has completed a heroic book on the background and evolution of democratic theory and institutions, but still lacks a publiher for it. He sent me the full text in attachments and I have copied them to my computer where I look forward to reading it -- have just browsed here and there so far, but it looks great to me, and it does deal, in its later chapters, with the contemporary situation involving global influences on democratization. Here is the cover page:

A Workshop on Local/Global Relations sponsored by ISA/TG06 will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia: June 21-23, 2001. It will focus on the emergence and shifts of the new 'localisms', neighborhoods, local/urban communities, ethnic and language identities, affinity groups, and economic and political associations, and their aggregation into networks and their formation of systems that create regions and impact the incipient world system. As part of this, the role of the individual will be examined, in particular the processes of individualization within a global framework. The theoretical contexts include: spatial and temporal relations and levels, the development of increased complexity or integrated diversity that transcends traditional socio-spatial boundaries, the logics of regionalism, including those of political integration, recently emerging social trends in different built environments, especially those concerning urban diversification.
