General Session

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

Marius Profiroiu, Bucharest University of Economic Studies, Bucharest, Romania
Eka Akobia, Caucasus University, Tbilisi, Georgia

During the General session 1, entitled: "The Agenda for Good Governance: Dealing with Inequality, Legal Disputes, Corruption and Fiscal Sustainability” three papers were presented:
1.    The Process of Separation of Ownership in Co-owned Companies of the Tel Aviv Municipality and the State of Israel - Case Study (Co-authored by Avi Ketko and Maria Viorica Bedrule-Grigoruta).
2.    Fiscal Responsibility Legal Framework - New Paradigm for Sustainability in the EU (Co-authored by Mihaela Tofan and Anca Florentina Vatamanu).
3.    When does Transparency mobilise Citizens against Corruption? (co-authored by Marius Profiroiu and Gregory Porumbescu). 
Each presentation was followed by a lively Q and A and presenters received academic feedback on their working papers.

During the General Session 2, entitled "Providing Services for the Vulnerable: Children, Youth and Asylum Seekers” there were three paper presentations:
1.    Paper entitled "Policy of free Lunches for Children from Unprivileged Families in the Czech Republic – Discourses and Frames” by Kamila Vlckova, Charles University, Prague 1, Czech Republic.
2.    Paper entitled "The Asylum Procedure and its Institutional Context: Dehumanisation and Alienation in Bureaucratic Practice” co-authored by Michal Sedlacko and Julia Dahlvik, University of Applied Science FH Campus Wien, Vienna, Austria.
3.    Paper entitled "Government and Governance under Pressure of Political and Legal Constitutionalism” by Istvan Stumpf, Szechenyi Istvan University, Gyor, Hungary.
Each presentation was followed by an active Q and A and presenters received academic feedback on their working papers, including ideas on how to improve their chosen research methods and research design, as well as how to expand their comparative cases further.
For example, in the case of the paper presented by Ms. Vlckova, it was stated that it would be important to control any other auxiliary variables (for example, availability of EU funds and others…) that could have affected the realisation of the policy of free lunches besides the variables discussed in the paper. This kind of disclaimer about other possible variables, not discussed in the paper, would strengthen the rigour of the existing research.
Also, in the case of the paper presented by Michal Sedlacko, a suggestion was made to expand the scope of the study by using a comparative analysis (for example, the German case).
