This article, which examines how governance is related to administrative reforms, particularly to the so-called post-New Public Management (NPM) reforms, analyses the typical features of the post-NPM reform wave as they relate to governance and considers the concepts of governance, networks, and partnership in a reform context. It provides evidence that governance reforms and NPM reforms partly overlap, especially when it comes to more specific reform tools.

Keywords: governance; administrative reforms; post-NPM reforms; networks; partnership; reform tools
