Description

It is the task of the IIAS and the UNDESA to track and focus on changes in the atmosphere of world governance and public administration. It can clearly be argued that the existence and the work of bodies like UNDESA and IIAS are themselves a consequence of a process that now goes by the contested and contentious term "globalization". International bodies must respect diversity and humanity. The work of public administration, which both UNDESA and the IIAS support and promulgate, may appear trivial in this context. Yet, this work does not agree. It shows that a new prestige has been earned by public servants, who are performing a public good, who are in the eye of the storm of globalization, and in the centre of the turning world.show more
