Alkadry’s research on public administration theory, social equity, gender and diversity has been published in dozens of peer-reviewed articles, book chapters and journal colloquiums. He is also co-editor and co-author of three books: Women and the Public Service: Obstacles, Challenges and Opportunities (2013, 2014), These things happen: stories from the public sectorr (2002), and Scaling up microenterprise services (1998).
Alkadry and the new fellows will be inducted at the Academy’s annual fall meeting, which will take place virtually and in person at five host sites across the country from November 3-9.
