Representing the leading scholars in the field, Professionalism and Public Service assesses the state of public administration in Canada while also moving the discipline forward both as a profession and an academic discipline.
The contributors to this volume trace the evolution of public administration institutions and explore issues such as the protection and improvement of the public service, recent innovations in the area of service delivery, and how this has created increased legitimacy and recognition from citizens. The various chapters also examine the importance of ongoing learning and training within the public service, and study many recent advances in teaching methods for both students as well as for public administration practitioners.
Written in honour of Kenneth Kernaghan, the groundbreaking scholar who played an important role in public administration in Canada, Professionalism and Public Service thematically highlights some of his lasting contributions to the discipline. It is a history of the recent evolution of an essential part of Canadian governance and a fitting tribute to a distinguished scholar.
