Visiting Professor: The Comparative Governance – Public Governance challenges

Yogyakarta (16/6) – The Visiting Professor of the International Program of Government Affairs and Administration Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta, Dr. Rozita Arshad from Universiti Utara Malaysia carried out a class that discussed the Comparative Governance – Public Governance challenges. The Federal system was one of the major politically unified systems other than confederations and unitary systems. Under this system, there were two levels of government under which both federal and state governments were subject to the constitution. In Malaysia, the system was firstly introduced in 1895 under the Federated Malay States (FMS). The system was formally adopted under the Federation of Malaya Agreement 1948 (FMA) after Malayan Union 1946 has been rejected by the Malays (Abdul Aziz Bari, 2006). At that time the federation was thought to be the best system to balance the need for centralization and the regional identity of the states.

In that class, Dr. Rozita Public Governance uses new public management from the previous use of public administration, where the stakeholders are Government, Private Sectors, and Citizens. Furthermore, he added that in the public sector there are mass media and journalists who have an important role in the private sector and influence the government, although not as much as others.
