Title Cabinet government: an elusive ideal?
Author Weller, Patrick Moray
Journal Name Public Administration
Editor Professor R.A.W Rhodes
Year Published 2003
Place of publication UK
Publisher Blackwell Publishing
Abstract This article will explore the proposition that cabinet government is dead by examining the different ways in which cabinet government is conceptualized and by suggesting that the lack of precision in the debates has undermined much of the criticism. It will seek to draw the strands of research together in a way that can emphasize how cabinet government has evolved while remaining at the core of government. The article will draw evidence from three countries, Australia, Canada and Britain, in each of which, despite the common heritage, cabinet has evolved in different ways.
