Really pleased that our Roundtable on 𝘈𝘥𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘐𝘯𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘮𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘤𝘴 is up @Journal_BPA. Thanks to @billresh and the rest of the journal's team!…
In it, @herschelfthomas and I discuss "look-up" data systems versus those built for analysis and integration.
Democracies' concern for accountability and the triumph of "efficiency" in organizational research. Means that the vast majority of data systems are built for look-up and not for solving problems.

Delighted to hold my book, now out with @CUP_PoliSci! Making Bureaucracy Work examines how public agencies deliver primary #education in India.

What is my argument? How might it advance our thinking on #bureaucracy, #implementation & the politics of inclusive #development? 🧵1/ Image
My book investigates variation in the delivery of primary schooling across rural India. Comparative scholarship has shed light on differences in social policies and public spending. I focus on policy implementation, a critical but understudied arena of education politics. 2/
Why implementation? Most countries have laws for universal primary schooling (#SDGs Goal 4). E.g. India has expanded education programs and spending. But implementation is a huge challenge. Meeting this challenge is critical for millions of households who rely on govt schools. 3/ ImageImage

"The emergence of #government as organized #violence-cum-#robbery"
SFI Seminar by @CoenTeulings (@UniUtrecht)

Follow this 🧵 for highlights + slides! Image
"What's the motivation of this paper? We've seen in most of these locations that there was an #emergence of some form of hierarchical #government [correlated with] a monopoly of #violence and increased #inequality [and] most people lost."

- @CoenTeulings (@UniUtrecht) ImageImageImageImage
Citing work led by SFI's Tim Kohler in 2017 showing the increase in #inequality (as measured by #GINIcoefficient) as society evolves greater political #scale and more complex/abstract means of production: Image

"The 🇯🇴 soldiers welcomed us at the border to sent us toward the camps. I told him 'wait a minute, I want to have a last look at Syria.'"
Listening to @lysedoucet & @LoraElwen report on the 10th anniversary of @ZaatariCamp and it brought back memories… /1
Memories of spending close to a decade working with @SavetheChildren for children and families affected by conflict in #Syria, #Iraq, #Somalia, #Myanmar, #Palestine, and many other places. And losing #cynicism, finding #purpose, and changing my perspective on conflict and war. /2
In 2011, I was sitting in an air conditioned office at @WorldBank in Washington DC. I thought I had landed my dream job. But instead I had tasted #bureaucracy, #hierarchy and the #cynicism of organizational politics. If you had met the 2011 version of myself, you would agree. /3

Whenever there is a discussion on what is holding Pakistan back, the #elephant in the room is #bureaucracy. So, what is wrong with bureaucracy, or should I say what wrong has it done to the country? For the answer, we need to dig a bit into its historical evolution.
Pakistan’s administrative machinery, in particular its infamous bureaucracy, is profoundly influenced by its colonial legacy. The #British had created authoritative and exceedingly centralized bureaucratic #institutions to rule the empire.

ایک دن خواجہ شاہد حسین،جو سب ذیلی محکموں کے سب سے بڑے افسر تھے یعنی سیکرٹری وزارتِ سیاحت و ثقافت،اسلام آباد سے ان کا فون آیا۔کہنے لگے۔یار عکسی مائی جنداں کی حویلی کی چھت ٹپک رہی ہے۔ پانی سم کر رنجیت سنگھ کے دربار کی اہم ترین پینٹنگ کو خراب کر رہا ہے۔
یہ بہت ہی قیمتی اثاثہ ہے۔اس کی قیمت کئی لاکھ پونڈ ہے۔اس کا ستیاناس ہو جائے گا۔یار تم وہاں ہو فورا اس پینٹنگ کو بچانے کاانتظآم کرو
میں نے اسی وقت ڈایئرکیٹر نارتھ جس کا دفتر عین سامنے تھا فون کیا اور درخواست کی کہ مجھے ایک سیڑھی فراہم کی جائے تاکہ میں حویلی کی چھت پر جا سکوں
۔ڈائریکٹر صاحب نے سب سن کر کہا۔جی ہاں جی ہاں ضرور،لیکن آپ یہ درخواست فائل پر لکھ کر بھیجیں
میں نے فوری حکم کی تعمیل کی۔ایک درخواست لکھی اس کو فائل میں لگایااور خاص طریقے سے ٹیگ میں پرویااور بڑے صاحب کے دفتر بھجوا دی جو رتبہ میں مجھ سے چھوٹے تھے۔ہفتہ گزر گیا ،کوئی جواب نہ آیا

Officially, the German federal government wants to save nothing less than the world #climate. In order to achieve this megalomaniac goal, it does not shy away from any expenditure that costs our economy around 50 billion euros annually in the form of high taxes and subsidies. /1
This moralizing #climate activism makes every German citizen poorer by at least 600 euros per year. /2
But among the heads and chief ideologues of large lobby organizations, there is the naive hope that this massive transformation will finally make #Germany the world champion exporter again - through the export of #climate technology. /3

Not so poetic (in fact one at all!) but here is a thread on my ordeal over last few days. Pl read n share this thread on #COVID19 #testing #healthtec and #bureaucracy . Its sad and if it could happen to me, it cld happen to anyone. You know that feeling when someone calls (1/9)
on ur cell frm the next room. It was my son n sure enough he was sick. High fever, backache. I quickly called the app company we’ve been using for Covid testing. Its called Klinik app n with a paranoid husband, travel n mom, we’ve done 20+ tests with ‘em. Many reminders (2/9)
later, by 8 pm, samples were collected frm me, Mom, Dad n son. We put Covid protocols in place n gave leave to all help etc. By night, he was throwing up and I had no choice but to attend to him. In all previous cases of using testing, v got our ‘negative’ reports in 18 hrs(3/9)

ROTOLO n.3 – Heritage and Energy Performance (inspired by @MIncontri):

Real case-study to explain how current energy codes are lethal for good buildings and our pockets.

@MIncontri PROTECTED rural building, dated from late XVIIth C. (with typical belgian add-on)
DEMOLISHED and rebuilt anew.
@MIncontri A simple but very decent detail-rich building, typical of rural Flanders.
With a heavy retrofitting was possible -in theory- to satisfy the requests of contemporary standards and clients, but this option was not chosen.

1. Am I the only one infuriated with the view that if @theresa_may and @jeremycorbyn agree a #brexit #customsunion then all is fine. This ignores the fact that it is leaving the #singlemarket that is the killer for business making, importing or exporting products. Why? A thread..
2/ Much of the commercial debate around #Brexit has focused on whether we stay in the #CustomsUnion or not. That is because this is the current battle between #Conservatives and #Labour. If Labour prevailed, and the UK remains in a Customs Union, then the tariff issue dies
3/ However, the much bigger problem relates to the #SingleMarket. Neither main party wants to stay in the Single Market because you can’t have free movement of goods, services and capital without accepting the same for people. But abandoning the single market means...

A #NewYearsEve #thread

On 🇪🇺 & 🇬🇧 & 🇳🇴 & 🦄🦄🦄

May 2019 bring much 🎂 to have & eat!

Due thanks @SebDance for inspiration
Some clever 🇬🇧 spin doctors have added a ➕ to 🇳🇴

assumedly to make it more alluring?

@USverdrup, Director at Norwegian Institute of International Affairs @NUPInytt noted to the 🇳🇴 @Aftenposten daily:
“If you stand at the edge
you no longer seek the best solution”
Please consider this:

Did any Central & Eastern European country joining 🇪🇺 2004
1st knock @EFTAsecretariat's door
as their preferred ‘solution’ for #SingleMarket access?

#EFTA & the #EEA Agreement it administers
= a barren 🏜️ for #democracy

A truly grey Brussels #bureaucracy.

Like most IT people I love tools. And tools are absolutely vital to #Agile, esp. #automation of #development & #delivery. But when it comes to managing teams & processes, do #tools and #Agile always mix? Maybe not…
1. Software developers like #tools. No, they adore tools. They seem the most natural way to solve a problem, and they are familiar territory that any #delivery team is more than happy to enter. #Agile
2. But #tools provide little support for the *content* of most #Agile delivery tasks, from defining Product Vision to conducting Daily Stand-Up Meetings. They do support day-to-day workflow, reporting and recording, but at that level are often easily replaced by manual #methods.
