2015 International Congress of the IIAS
The International Institute of Administrative Sciences (IIAS) in close collaboration with the Fundação Getúlio Vargas is organizing the 2015 International Congress of IIAS to be held from 22 to 26 June in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
I. Call for papers
The congress will bring together government professionals, academics and practitioners, PhD students and young researchers in public administration and management, as well as contributors from other disciplines who will exchange on the following main theme
Trust in Public Administration
Trust is considered as a crucial issue at all levels of governance. An effective democratic society depends on the confidence citizens have in their government for designing and managing public policies and public sector (citizens/users trust) but also on the trust that civil servants have in the public sector reforms (inner trust, within the public sector). During the recent decades, with the economic and other crises and with the current developments in the governance systems, we observed a decrease of the trust in governments and in public administration. The distrust is alarming and questions the models of governance, the democratic system and calls for innovations to improve the performance, efficiency and effectiveness in responding to the citizens’ needs and to the challenges of our society. Restoring trust requests several measures/actions to strengthen integrity, transparency, accountability but also the engagement/involvement of all the partners/stakeholders of this interaction.
II. Open Call
The 2015 International Congress of the IIAS is expected to bring together academics and practitioners, PhD Students and leading young researchers from different world regions addressing major issues of public administration.
The Open abstracts/panels is for authors who wish to submit an abstract or organize a session for consideration to the 2015 International Congress of the IIAS, but do not believe
that their topic fits under any of the panels, special workshop topics or other sessions.
