“What is clear from conversation with our alumni and fellow scholars is that public administration—as a field of practice and academic study—in nations around the world is in a time of revolutions, and that it is going to take a cadre of well-trained, committed people to help us deal with the challenges of the 21st century,” said Tina Nabatchi, Joseph A. Strasser Endowed Professor in Public Administration.

Conversations in Conflict Studies: ''Don’t Be Critical: The Rise of 'Collaborative Thuggery'''

''Don’t Be Critical: The Rise of 'Collaborative Thuggery.'''Guest Speaker: Robert A. Rubinstein, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and Professor of International Relations at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University, where from 1994-2011 he directed the Program on the Analysis and Resolution of Conflicts (PARC). His work focuses on medical anthropology and public health, and on multilateral responses to complex emergencies.
Since the publication of Barbara Gray’s germinal work Collaborating: Finding Common Ground for Multiparty Problems in 1989, collaboration has become widely valued in public and private discourse. In this conversation I will discuss how collaboration morphed from being an important tool for joint action to becoming a moral good, indeed a cudgel limiting civil discourse, marking critical disagreement as bad, and hiding the contested nature of some public policies. I consider the promotion of collaboration as a façade obscuring pre-planned actions, a smokescreen for the lack of real public participation in policy development. The result, “Collaborative Thuggery,” harms rather than improves civil discourse.
Conversations in Conflict Studies is a weekly educational speaker series for students, faculty, and the community. The series, sponsored by PARCC, draws its speakers from Syracuse University faculty, national and international scholars and activists, and PhD students. Pizza is served.
