Virtual Book Launch

Concept Note

The destruction of the COVID-19 Pandemic has marked every society with deep-seated wounds whose scars have only begun to heal. Yet, even as societies take their first steps away from the trauma of the Pandemic, they confront new and perhaps equally daunting challenges in the post-COVID era. These challenges offer a unique occasion to consider how the mechanisms of Public Value (PV) creation and preservation can be rebuilt and improved, mindful of what has been left in the Pandemic’s wake, and of the difficult road that lies ahead. The aim of this book launch, then, is to examine the forward-looking possibilities of multi-stakeholder value co-creation, which involves the renewed efforts of civil society, public managers, politicians, and society-at-large in a new post-Pandemic era. The book, written by CASS Advisor Dr Usman W Chohan, examines many different facets that appeal deeply to public value scholarship: value stability & transitions, inequalities within & between publics, necropolitics, disaster preparedness, value measurement, and sustainability, all of which represent important explorations within public value theory, and can greatly enrich PV research going forward.
