This communication is part of a research project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020: COGOV. It aims at presenting the Francophone literature related to four emerging theoretical approaches in the field of public management: (1) Public value, (2) Networkgovernance, (3) Collaborative public leadership, (4) Co-production and co-creation combined with digitalisation. More specifically, it explores the relevance of this categorization regarding the specificities of Francophone literature and its public management models. This systematic literature review uses a methodological approach inspired by Ferlie & al. (2012). Over the period 2000-2018, 408 articles linked to the four theoretical approaches mentioned above were extracted from six scientific journals. Then, an explanatory multidimensional lexical analysis has been applied (clusters and factorial).
