Administrative Culture Amid Issues of the New Nationalism, Borders, Margins, Post-Colonialism or Inequality

Panel Code

The rise of nationalist politicians across many democracies in recent years has revived the fears of De Tocqueville (1835) of the tyranny of the majority. In addition, flows of migrants across porous borders have raised issues of national identity and severely challenged free trade pacts. Refugees and ethno-religious minorities existing at the margins of society have also suffered waves of discrimination or expulsion. Post-colonial effects and widespread inequality also challenge bureaucracies in many societies. From all of these turbulent processes, how will administrative culture be changed? Papers are welcome on any of these topics, with preference given to those having impact beyond one country.
