Ford Social Justice Initiative
Description
The primary focus of this proposal is on reshaping the field of Graduate Education in public service, to provide appropriate and necessary training for the next generation of public service managers and leaders. This proposal advances the argument that a social justice perspective - a lens on the sytematic, insititutional and structural conditions that constrain individual and community development - is a necessary and underdeveloped analytical tool in policy curricula.
