Scholarship is a multi-generational collective enterprise with a commitment to advancing knowledge, inspiring reflection, and facilitating stronger neighborhoods, cities and countries. This book explicitly adopts this lens as a recognition of the contributions of Prof. Terry Cooper to scholarship and practice, and as a mechanism to connect the past to the present and ultimately the future of scholarship in public ethics and citizen engagement. This “multi-generational” approach is designed to reveal the persistent and future ongoing need to engage as a scholarly and practitioner community with these questions. The book is broken into three main sections: citizenship and neighborhood governance, public service ethics and citizenship, and global explorations of citizenship and ethics. Unique in this collection is the explicit linkage across the main focus areas of citizenship and ethics, as well as the comparative and global context in which these issues are explored. Cases and data are examined from the United States, Chile, Thailand, India, China, Georgia, and Myanmar. Ultimately, it is made clear through each individual chapter and the collective whole that research on citizenship and ethics within public affairs and service has a rich history, remains critical to the strengthening of public institutions today, and will only increase in global significance in the years ahead.
