Comment in Asia Pacific Journal of Public Administration

I’ve written a short comment for Asia Pacific Journal of Public Administration, “How to bridge East and West.”  Manuscript here.  Abstract: Today, the field of public administration has two problems that can be fixed with one solution. The first problem is fixation on a limited set of “middle-level” topics in public administration. The second problem is a bias toward scholarship generated within a very small number of Western democracies. We can fix both problems by adopting an approach to scholarship that focuses on the macro-level of public administration — that is, on questions of grand strategy and statebuilding.
