ICE Detention Centers Holocaust Implications. I have to admit that I am appalled at the treatment of
these people! Theres much to be said about collaboration within your study referencing privatized
detention centers and those owned by states and municipalities. All of which are under the same
jurisdiction and should be mandated to maintain the same standards, quality of life, and monitored
properly. There are International Humanitarian Laws that are obviously being violated by the
overcrowding, unsafe water quality, and unwanted/undocumented medical procedures and lack of care.
Major crosscutting administrative laws vary in their authorization of collaboration as a public value
policy and of specific designs, including collaborative networks, public policy dispute resolution,
mediation, public participation, dialogue, and deliberation (Amsler, 2016).
However, I am inclined to differ with you on your scripture choice, James 1:12. I believe that
scripture was referring to the persecuted followers of Christ in biblical days that were jailed because of
their beliefs in the Messiah. Whereas, the detained today are trying to find asylum in the U.S. and
make a better life for their families, that became prisoners for it. Further, the Holocaust victims were
taken and massacred for resisting the change in government radical reform to Nazis. Assuming that the
immigrants detained are Mexican or of Central/South American decent, why detain them more than
24 hours when we can send them back across the border? Governments can only stimulate
environmental conditions that are necessary to generate spontaneous behavior by citizens as individuals
and groups…programs of involvement and collaboration need to be governed by citizens and
administered by practitioners…adjusting more vigorously to include transformation of goodwill into
effective operations (Vigoda, 2002). Can the partnership needed for a collaboration or good
governance be attained without a covenant involving both parties?
You also stated that as immigrant detention continues to grow the usage of state and municipal
prisons…can be addressed by public officials. Well, that may be the problem, or lack thereof when the
decision-makers should be lobbying not just to demand the standards of the facilities be brought to
livable conditions, but simultaneously to bring proper reform. In conclusion, I challenge us to in
everything, then, do to others as you would have them do to you. For this is the essence of the Law and
the Prophets. Matthew 7:12.
developing countries ability to control the world pandemic of COVID-19 to ensure the health and safety
of the land, economics, and people. Scientific research identified the start of COVID-19 originated in
Wuhan, China (Moon, (2020). While in the earlier stages symptoms of COVID19 seemed like the severe
acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) or Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) (Moon, (2020). After
multiple infections were studied it was determined COVID-19 was more contagious (Moon, (2020). The
infection of COVID -19 is seen as the most impactful infectious virus globally (Moon, (2020). COVID has
impacted the publics financial, health, and psychological fears. The number of infections is more rapid
than previously mentioned diseases (Moon, (2020). COVID has a height of 2.5 million infections
worldwide, with more than 160,000 deaths in the span of four months (Moon, (2020). When compared
to SARS and MERS combined infections totaled 8,096 in the span of eight months (Moon, (2020).
Harlan Cleveland was the first to use the word governance as a substitute for the term public
administration. Cleveland stated, What the people want is less government and more governance
(Frederickson, (2004). The term governance has evolved over time in terms of public administration.
Public administration started with the understanding of one who implements government policies and
works as civil servant. In the modern form a person positioned as a public administrator is not only
accountable for influencing the procedures and systems of governments, they are also held accountable
for social transparency. One who governs needs to have the ability communicate clearly, plan, organize,
direct, coordinate, and control government systems.
China, and South Korea discovered there first verified COVID cases in January 2020. Presented
challenging conditions as increasing case numbers were verified, cases steadily (Moon, (2020). On
February 19, 2020 there was a height of 909 newly verified cases. It was determined that the up rise in
COVID came from religious group Shincheonji service meetings from Kyungbook Province (Moon,
(2020). Shincheonji beliefs teach the true faith with salvation to be given at the final judgment. Persons
outside the religious group are believed to be deprived of mercy and demolished (Moon, (2020).
The South Korean government alerted the public with the red level due to an increase in COVID19 cases
in Daegu and Kyungbook Province (Moon, (2020). The government sprang into action communicating,
planning, organizing, directing, coordinating, and controlling government systems for the wellbeing of
their country (Moon, (2020). Measures varied from epidemiological examination of the infected to
homeopathic care, public, and economic plans (Moon, (2020). the government suffered difficulties in
bargaining with the religious group when trying to gather data. the South Korean governments well-
thought-out battle of cases demonstrated innovative and useful answers to COVID19 epidemic (Moon,
Representation in Collaborative Governance: A Case Study of a Food Policy Council
This case study focuses on the aspect of representation as a hallmark of democratic governance.
Representation is the act of having people from different areas with varying perspectives brought
together in deciding what should be done concerning a particular issue affecting the community or state
(Koski et al., 2018). The study was based on a food policy council located in the Western United States,
where representation was applied in public administration to ensure that everything in the region ran
smoothly. Therefore, collaborative governance involves the community, government, and the private
sectors that interact and work together to achieve what could not be achieved by a single sector in the
public administration (Amsler, 2016). However, this requires a set of conditions that must be met to
ensure that this type of governance runs smoothly.
The case study brings together management, politics, and law in the public administration in an attempt
to provide stable governance to a group of people (Koski et al., 2018). From what can be drawn from the
study, the first condition required for effective collaborative governance is democracy. Society must be
democratic where each individual has their rights and freedoms to do whatever they want as long as
they abide by the law (Koski et al., 2018). This will give room for representation in which different
groups can rise and demand that their opinions be listened to when making decisions affecting them.
This is a good indicator that collaborative governance is specifically designed to embolden the inclusion
and participation of different stakeholders and a diversified array of parties in the policymaking process.
