This paper originated with the discussions at the experts meetings at the OECD for PUMA's Distributed Public Governance (Agencies and Authorities) Project. These suggested that the quite structured systems of classification of government organisations in continental countries like Germany could equally be applied to the range of similar bodies in English-speaking countries like New Zealand. Cross-country dialogue has been hampered by the lack of a common language and classification to compare agencies and authorities across jurisdictions. In particular the term "agency" has quite different, but quite precise, legally defined meanings in different jurisdictions.
