IAP BOOK SERIES
Public Administration & Social Equity
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 and scholars 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 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. Contributed works, individual or dual authored monographs, handbooks, encyclopedias etc. are all welcomed for consideration in this series.
