The Foundations of Public Service Wing

Public Service is expansive, intersecting with numerous areas of everyday life and differing greatly from one nation to the next and even from one city to another. There are commonalities across public services in societies too. These foundations of public service can be witnessed in the hardworking appointed and elected public servants who carry out the services that make society function as well as through physical and organizational manifestations, including architecture old and new. In the Foundations of Public Service wing, you will find examples of the critical roots and offshoots of public service.
