Book: The State of Access

It is my pleasure to announce that the book: The State of Access: Success and Failure of Democracies to Create Equal Opportunities is now available from Brookings.

The book has been written by a diverse set of scholars and presents up-to-date insights from around the globe into failures and solutions to providing citizens equal access to public services, economic opportunities, justice and participation in the democratic process. Public managers and others trying to narrow the gap face the challenge of complexity. How should they prioritize? How many cause and effect relationships do exist and which one should be tackled first? How can those in need be identified best?

In any case, true democratic governance is too important, so all of should ask us what we can do to realize it.

Feedback can be given at the Improving Access-Org Website.
