I’m looking forward to giving a presentation as part of the spring research seminar series at the AU School of Public Affairs on March 29. I will likely talk about my current statecrafting book project.
Foreign Policy has just published my column on the concept of “strategies for governing” on its website. Read the article.
I’ll teach a new online course for the UMass Amherst School of Public Policy in Summer 2018: PPA 697SG Strategies for Governing. Details about the course here. (Typo in the current web description of the course: It should say: “This course examines the strategies that are used by national leaders to achieve national security, internal order, prosperity and justice.“)
The draft syllabus is here — comments welcomed!
The course is an elective within our new one-year MPP.
I discussed my recent article in Perspectives on Public Management and Governance with Justin Bullock and Nathan Favreau as part of their new series of Facebook interviews. Video here. Link to the article: The Aims of Public Administration: Reviving the Classical View.
I’ll discuss my book Can Government Do Anything Right? as a distinguished visiting lecturer at Suffolk University on April 12. Details here.
I’ve posted a working paper on SSRN: Strategies for Governing: An Approach to Public Management Research for West and East. I will present this paper at the BK21 research workshop on January 11-13, 2018, sponsored by the Graduate School of Public Administration (GSPA) of Seoul National University and the Research for Government hub at SDA Bocconi School of Management. The Powerpoint slides for the presentation are here. The presentation will also refer to my recent article in Perspectives in Public Management and Governance. (Audio of my January 11 presentation is available here.)
