Discussing the future of research in public administration (PA) is more than just listing topics for reserach which are inspired by possible future challenges for the public sector. Even if national contexts determine a strong path dependency for research agendas, there are four major trends which affect the future of PA research: Europeanisation, reform agendas, globalisation issues, and marketisation of research. A crucial element in the debate is to know what the specific European voice is and should be in PA research. For this purpose it is necessary to explicitly organise research in PA.
