IASIA Conference 2019


Jul 22 - Jul 26, 2019

8 AM - 6 PM

Portugal - the campus of ISCTE-IUL (Lisbon)

Public Administration’s Missions and Goals for the Achievement of the SDGs

IASIA Conference 2019

Overview

The 2019 IASIA Conference will be organized by the International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration in close cooperation with ISCTE-University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE-IUL). The conference will take place at the campus of ISCTE-IUL on July 22-26.

The choice of this theme reflects the awareness that public administration must have a significant contribution to the construction of a good society, where the values underlying the SDGs are a key issue. For this, it is essential to promote the analysis and discussion of the most significant questions at stake in order to find solutions that guarantee a reform of public administration where structures, procedures and, in general, the practices of public servants conform to the assumed values.

As usual, the conference aims at bringing together practitioners, academics, PhD students and young researchers in public administration and management, as well as contributors from any other disciplines who will exchange on current and ongoing topics and concerns during the various sessions. ISCTE-IUL has made a notable investment in public administration over the last few years and is today the reference school in this area in Portugal. It also has modern and functional facilities that allow the best hosting of the conference.

The preparatory work for the conference in 2018 is underway and is expected to draw a large crowd.

Submitters are strongly encouraged to propose topics likely to be of broad interest in the PA education and training community and interactive sessions that will engage both the panelists and the audience in creative ways. Of special interest are topics focusing on curricula, joint-degrees and vocational education and training.

Institutional members and partners as well as interested affiliated-individuals are invited to submit proposals for panels. For more information, please consult the call-for-panels below or contact the IASIA Executive Secretary, Bardhyl Dobra b.dobra@iias-iisa.org
