Critical Acclaim
‘In this insightful collection, more than fifty international scholars reflect on Public Administration traditions and their connections with PA teaching, explore relationships between research, theory, pedagogic scholarship, and practice, and offer a rich and diversified set of case studies. A must-read for PA researchers and practitioners worldwide!’
– Alketa Peci, Fundação Getulio Vargas, Brazil

‘This Handbook not only brings to the fore the importance of a Higher Education public administration curriculum from a multi-continental perspective, but it also highlights the necessity of a curriculum that incorporates both an academic and practitioner perspective that takes into consideration diverse pedagogical approaches to the teaching of public administration. These approaches are central to imparting, sharing and developing knowledge of public administration that prepares and enables current and future public servants who are fit for purpose in times of wicked and disruptive problems, and who display attributes of empathy, flexibility and responsiveness, much needed in this time of the pandemic and beyond.’
– Michelle Esau, University of the Western Cape, South Africa
