Minnowbrook traditions locate democracy within the ambits of the outcomes of effective public administration. Evidence from democracies around the world shows that public administration is a mainstay in not only ensuring that governments are run right procedurally and operationally, but also that governments’ actions preserve democracy. In the face of rising threats to democracy, I revisit this important question of what public administration can do-as a discipline and a practice-to preserve democracy and good governance. As a starting point, Latin American and Caribbean countries should refocus their institutions toward neutralizing issues of inequality and fairness within the governance processes. Based on lessons learned, public administration can and should be an integral part of this democratizing process.
