At the Pleasure of the Crown: The Politics of Bureaucratic Appointments. UBC Press, 2020. 148 pp, with index.

There is an important gap in connecting skilled prospective public servants to opportunities within government institutions. Most students across various fields of studies have questions or uncertainties about their future careers. Even those studying public administration may still be on the fence about choosing the public service amidst all the criticism surrounding it. IPAC, for example, aims to fill this gap with the organisation of yearly events, such as speed mentoring events or workshops for students and new public servants. These events connect students with public servants to answer burning questions, such as: What should I know about the human resource processes? What kinds of skills should I develop to be a good public servant? What kind of job opportunities exist in the public service? What different departments exist, what are their differences and which one should I choose?

Digital Transformation at Scale: Why Strategy is the Delivery. London Publishing Partnership, (2018)

Across the globe, the traditional practices of public administration are faced with the challenge of adapting to an increasingly digital society. This is not a new problem. The state has steadily lagged behind leading practices in technological adoption for decades but with the increasing pace of technological innovation and adoption elsewhere, government risks falling steadily further behind. With public health crises like the COVID-19 pandemic forcing the public administration to adopt digital practices in the absence of the analog and in-person work-arounds that have long substituted for meaningful digital adaptation, in 2020, chickens have come home to roost.

Democracy in Canada: The Disintegration of Our Institutions. McGill-Queens University Press, 2019. 504 pp, with index.

Donald Savoie is worried about Canada. He argues that Canadian representative democracy may appear robust when compared with other democracies but is besieged by a democratic deficit rooted in the history and creation of Canada. He sets out to prove that this path leading towards democratic failure can only be altered if we realise that our institutions have drifted too far from fundamental democratic values and principles to reverse themselves.
