PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION FOR THE 21st CENTURY: CONTINUITY AND CHANGE

The Canadian Association for Programs in Public Administration (CAPPA) is pleased to announce its eighth annual Research Conference in Public Administration, Policy, and Management. It will be held in Montreal, at Concordia University, from May 23-24, 2019.

The context in which public administration takes place is changing rapidly. Austerity politics; seemingly perpetual global economic and political crises; the delegitimization of science and expertise; and the politics of recognition and representation, including their populist variants, all have, in one way or another, recentred debates about the role of bureaucracies and bureaucrats in governing and governance. The conference theme aims to bring together researchers and practitioners seeking to understand the implications of these changes for contemporary public administration.

The Canadian Association for Programs in Public Administration (CAPPA) is pleased to announce its eighth annual Research Conference in Public Administration, Policy, and Management. It will be held in Montreal, at Concordia University, from May 23-24, 2019.

The context in which public administration takes place is changing rapidly. Austerity politics; seemingly perpetual global economic and political crises; the delegitimization of science and expertise; and the politics of recognition and representation, including their populist variants, all have, in one way or another, recentred debates about the role of bureaucracies and bureaucrats in governing and governance. The conference theme aims to bring together researchers and practitioners seeking to understand the implications of these changes for contemporary public administration.

We invite proposals for panels, papers, and posters that address the broad theme of Public Administration for the 21st Century as well as other topics in the study of public administration in Canada. The conference program also includes a poster session for graduate students. Suggested topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
