Public Administration in post-conflict reconstruction
The 2024 NISPAcee Annual Conference will revisit and compile an evolving perspective on the role of Public Governance and Administration in post-conflict reconstruction aiming to take stock of decades of state building experiences, revisiting and compiling some of the best practices as well as reflecting on the new and unique opportunities for build-up provided by digitalisation and artificial intelligence, producing theoretical and practical approaches to the most pressing post-conflict PG/PA matters in CEE region as well as globally.
Working group - Calls
The working group on Local Governance deals with all sub-national levels of governance from several points of view: regulation, structure, organisation, functioning, finance, representation, election and public policies, etc. The WG especially welcomes empirical research results, comparative analysis, theoretical contributions, and interdisciplinary approaches are, of course, supported, too.
The Digital Government Working Group invites innovative papers on the influence of information communication technologies (ICT) on government, public administration, public policy and the public sector. NISPAcee’s focus and differentiation of regarding this topic is discovering some of the special challenges originating from the CEE region but also contributing to the general discourses on the digital transformation of citizens, institutions and governance.
Public Administration Reform in CEE and CA
In fragile territories, policymakers usually need to understand the intricacies of different (e.g., political, economic, social) contexts, correctly identify the adequate set of needed resources and manage internal and external interventions in a coordinated, accountable, and timely manner. All this effort, complemented by a process of co-designing the new services, would eventually help communities regain their trust in state and its authorities and reconstruct their inner ties.This Working Group has an outstanding tradition of bringing together thinkers and doers of public administration reforms throughout and beyond the CEE Region and the Caucasus.
Politico-Administrative Relations in CEE
The theme of Politico-Administrative Relations (PAR) and its focus on observing the roles and interplay between ministers and senior bureaucrats endures, both as a scholarly enquiry and as a practitioner concern.
Public Finance and Public Financial Management
The topic of the WG is public finance, which plays a vital role in providing essential public services and goods. The WG deals with the financial management of existing resources, which includes both microeconomic and macroeconomic dimensions and whose effectiveness is critical for creating an enabling environment at all levels for sustainable development.
