What is the status of the human services integration movement? Born in the 1960s, efforts at human services integration (SI) seemed to subside during the late 1970s and early 1980s. Robert Agranoff demonstrates that the SI movement is alive and flourishing in a variety of forms throughout the country. Contemporary SI efforts are more modest and concentrated, but they share a common feature-a framework-which Agranoff presents in this article. Providing many examples of current SI programs, Agranoff ends by stressing the challenge that the movement poses for public administration. Central to that challenge is the need to adopt a new paradigm that replaces the old emphasis on single organizational structures with a "transorganizational management" perspective.
