Challenging times, challenging administration

Manchester University Press

The final chapter of the book takes on a deliberately normative tone. In setting out an agenda for social justice within public administration it presents ten conclusions and associated avenues of action. These include a reflection of how a broader commitment to social justice might be engendered within Irish society as a means of informing the ethos of public administration as well a consideration of how an ideational shift towards social justice could be generated within public administration. The chapter presents further conclusions on public sector capacity building; on the cultivation of a stronger justice disposition amongst officials; on the renewal of governance and civic engagement; on the relationship between administration and politics; on the development of the relational state and the role of the local level in Irish democratic and administrative life.
