Abstract

Global recognition that there are universal human rights and that governments have a duty to respect them, was one of the most important developments of the 20th century. In this century, though, human rights are challenged in many places. What role do scholars and practitioners in public administration play in protecting human rights? This question has not received adequate attention in the field. In this roundtable, nine scholars explore the different ways in which public administration scholarship and practice may contribute to the advancement of fundamental human rights. A general theme is the need within our field for more systematic attention to the subject of human rights. Contributors identify topics that deserve particular attention, such as the protection of democracy, the provision of services essential to personal security and development, and the empowerment of Indigenous peoples.
