|Bakhytzhan Kurmanov, Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan:
Participating in a NISPAcee conference is a must activity for any young and aspiring scholar. I was proud to present and share my knowledge on public sector reform in Kazakhstan with enthusiastic colleagues from Central and Eastern Europe.

|Vanja Dolapčev, Belgrade Open School, Serbia:
It was the very first time I attended a NISPAcee Annual Conference and I was really looking forward to it. Furthermore, it was a great opportunity for me and for my organization to present our research work. I felt like a "kid in a candy store”, enjoying the contents of the presentations during the Conference and trying to soak it all in, as well as spending some quality time at the social events. I am assured I will be meeting all participants again next year in Prague.
|Goulya K. Nurlybaeva, Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration, Russian Federation:
Thank you for the excellent organisation of the NISPAcee conference. I enjoyed it and obtained many useful contacts and information that I really needed, both as a researcher and practitioner. The conference is a great and unique opportunity for my professional growth and development and future international cooperation in the field of Public Administration. Ideal networking environment, perfect venue and exquisite social program! Look forward to our future meetings!
|Jack W. Meek, President, NASPAA, USA:
The 26th Annual NISPAcee Conference on "Public Administration for Well-being and Growth” offered important workshops and keynote speakers. The conference offered the opportunity for enthusiastically offered future considerations, close personal interaction and the sharing of common concerns and solutions. NISPAcee provides an important setting for deliberation and dialogue. The conference is well managed and all the sessions I attended were strong.
|Elena Cigu, Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi, Romania:
On 24th-26th May, the Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi, Romania, hosted the 26th NISPAcee Annual Conference 2018, which is one of the most visible academic events in the field of public administration, attended by those who show a genuine interest in enhancing their research skills in the area mentioned. It was a great pleasure to participate in this excellent conference, both as a researcher and as a member of the local organizing team.
The academic programme included keynote lectures, panel debates, and parallel academic sessions (working groups), where the scientific content of papers presented was certainly of a very high standard and speakers were strongly encouraged to debate their own views and reflections on the topic.
I would like to thank the NISPAcee team very much for choosing our university and I am honoured that I was able to experience the best conference on public administration with the most qualified and experienced specialists!
|Petr Witz, Technical University of Denmark, Denmark:
The conference organizers deserve huge respect. The NISPAcee conferences clearly belong to the best in their class. I would even argue that they are the very best - both in terms of scientific content and opportunities for networking. To me, coming to a NISPAcee conference is like coming home. No other conference creates such a special atmosphere. You always feel a bit sad and nostalgic when it is over and it is time to leave. I am already looking forward to next year!
|Ineta Lakstigala, University of Latvia:
