Meeting of the Working Group on Public Administration Education

WG Programme Coordinators:
Calin Hintea, Babes-Bolyai University, Department of Public Administration, Cluj-Napoca, Romania
Roger Hamlin, Michigan State University and Babes-Bolyai University

Place: 26th NISPAcee Annual Conference, Iasi, Romania
Date:  May 24-26, 2018

The Working Group on Public Administration Education held three sessions. The theme of the working group, in addition to the overall conference theme, was "Critical Issues in Public Administration Education.”

Session 1 began with the co-chairs discussing these themes and laying the groundwork for the discussions to follow.   During the sessions, representatives of six countries presented 12 formal papers. 
All of the papers that were presented made important contributions to knowledge. Presentation time was controlled to allow for discussion, and substantial, meaningful discussion was part of each session. 

In addition, the presidents of NASPAA, and NISPAcee, the Secretary General of EAPAA, the NISPAcee immediate past president, and past president of ASPA, who is the International Director of the ASPA National Council were also present in the working group sessions and made formal or informal presentations or updates which generated considerable discussion.  

Papers and discussions covered topics on universities’ responses to market demand, teaching methods, mid-career training programmes, public administration competencies, accreditation and the ranking of public administration programmes.  

Many members of the audience of the working group participated in more than one of the three sessions, such that a continuity of discussion was present.  In fact, many were repeats from the sessions in Budapest, Tbilisi, and Kazan, indicating the development of a true, core working group on education within NISPAcee. Attendance was good except for the Saturday morning session.

In general, the working group was a current success and is successfully developing an ongoing agenda of discussion.
