Call For Book Proposals

In the 21st century, the most pressing, wicked problems all involve issues of social equity. Whether global climate change, natural disasters, development and resource usage, political oppression, police killings, genocide, COVID-19, international matters and more, social inequities abound. If the world is to be more equitable throughout the 21st century and into the 22nd century, administrators in all sectors must be competent in how to promote fairness for all.

Still, classical training in public administration has often emphasized skills like planning, organizing, staffing, directing, coordinating, reporting, and budgeting. Historically, teaching equity has not been a priority for many MPA and doctoral programs. Yet in order to better train/educate administrators/scholars in how to foster social equity, they must be exposed to the complex dynamics involved in diagnosing, understanding, and resolving inequities, and reading and debating case studies is often the best way to facilitate classroom education on social equity. Submissions may include, original manuscripts, edited volumes, contributed works, individual or dual authored monographs, handbooks, encyclopedias etc.
