After its successful start in Zagreb in 2016, EAPAA will again organise its Dean's Panel during the NISPACEE conference. The panel will discuss strategic issues in the management of PA programmes, including the internationalisation of the programmes and their staff, structural changes of curricula (national versus international) and the effects of new technologies on PA teaching.


In addition to the Deans and Heads of programmes, we would like to invite everyone who is interested in the development of the programmes, their quality management and their evaluation.


EAPAA, the European Association for Public Administration Accreditation, is Europe's foremost accreditation agency in the field of public administration. It was founded in 1999 by the European public administration community to raise the quality of academic degree programmes in public administration through accreditation. One of its aims is to encourage discussion about the evolution of our public administration programmes.


Recently, in addition to accreditation, it launched a new certification service, which places more emphasis on training for the national public service and is a lighter procedure at lower costs.
