The 26th NISPAcee Annual Conference hosts the 20th Anniversary Workshop of the Journal of Comparative Policy Analysis (JCPA: https://comparativepolicy.org) affiliated with our partner scholarly society, the JCPA-Forum.  Such workshops are taking place throughout 2018 with ten other international associations. The JCPA is the only explicit journal of comparative policy studies and is recognized as having pioneered this domain. It grants the award for the best comparative paper at partner associations including NISPAcee, and involves institutional and individual members as well as authors, editorial board and council members, from Central and Eastern Europe (www. Comparativepolicy.org).

The theme of the Workshop is Comparing Public Policy Process and Effects: Well-Being and Growth in Central and Eastern Europe Countries. This will be addressed in a comparative perspective, with the focus on the way public policy processes and their effects influence well-being in terms economic, social and cultural growth.

The goal of the workshop is to involve established and young scholars in a dialogue advancing comparative policy studies. By comparative it is meant comparisons between the policies or policy experiments of social units (nations, institutions, organizations, and others). The comparisons can put forward comparative methods, comparative theories, supporting or reinforcing policy practices.

Faced with unprecedented challenges, such as globalization, corruption, government mistrust, economic changes, an aging society and migration, governments across Central and Eastern Europe need more than ever to be able to design modern governance and policy instruments. Public policy comparisons can facilitate the design, implementation and know-how transfer of public policies between governments in the region. It is believed that the comparative approach allows for lesson drawing, inspiration, transfer or adaptation of success stories, and avoidance of failures. These can considerably improve the decision-making processes, as well as citizens’ participation and quality of life.
