Background

Jos C.N. Raadschelders is appointed on an honorary basis at Leiden University from December 2011. His primary appointment is that of professor at the John Glenn College of Public Affairs, the Ohio State University (since 2011). Since 2013 he serves as the Associate Dean for Faculty Development. Before that he worked at the Universities of Leiden (1983-1998) and Oklahoma (1998-2011). Jos C.N. Raadschelders, received his Ph.D. in the social sciences from Leiden University in 1990 for a study on local government development in the Netherlands between 1600-1980. His master's degree is also from Leiden University (1982) and is in history, with minors in public administration and international relations.

Expertise

His interest in history is visible in his many publications on administrative history as an approach and of specific administrative histories (water management, church and state, administration of national heritage, elementary and secondary education, police, etc.). Another of his interests is epistemology of public administration, a topic in which he published several articles that culminated in a book with Oxford University Press (2011).

Being born and raised in the Netherlands and coming to the United States in 1998, it is not a surprise that he is interested in comparative government and he wrote a book about this with a colleague in Israel (Eran Vigoda-Gadot). In fact, being responsible for an international exchange program at the University of Leiden (between 1989-1998) he has met students from all over the world and is very much aware of national differences in education styles and in the structure and functioning of government. That has translated in an interest in organizational culture and ethics, an area he has published and taught.

Dr. Raadschelders has lectured for and taught public servants from various countries, including diplomats from Mozambique; civil servants from Belgium, Luxembourg, Sweden, the United States, Latvia, the Kyrghyz Republic, China, Kenya, and Yemen; legislators from Finland; military personnel and police officers from the United States.

Publications

He has published a variety of books and articles. In the 2006-2011 period he served as managing editor of Public Administration Review, the journal of record of the American Society for Public Administration and the leading public administration journal in the world. Prior to his appointment at the Glenn College he worked at Leiden University in the Netherlands (1983-1998) and the University of Oklahoma (1998-2011).
