The NISPAcee Annual Conference 2020 has been cancelled because of the current Corona Virus pandemic and would not be organized this year.
The NISPAcee Steering Committee has been taken this decision after serious considerations of all actual important factors, analyses of surveys among conference paper holders and all available information. However, we do hope that we would be able to organize a NISPAcee Annual Conference in Slit in the near years.
Organized in co-operation with Faculty of Law, University of Split
"Governance and citizens' rights
in the era of Europeanization, globalization and digitalization"
Following the diverse and immense societal and political changes over the past years and decades throughout the NISPAcee region, the 2020 conference and its main session, set out to reflect on the problems of "Governance and citizens' rights in the era of Europeanisation, globalisation and digitalisation". Our intention is to attract research papers and develop discussions on innovative and adaptive structures and processes ensuring citizens’ rights and emerging in response to the governance and regulation challenges within the broader frameworks of Europeanisation, globalisation and digitalisation. The three processes – the EU and Europeanisation, the global trends shaping governance, and, in particular, the digital transformation – are about to change the way we see our societies, economies and polities – in particular our regulatory frameworks and policies, and public administrations. The common factors present in these processes, such as interconnectedness, networks, development, adaptation and innovation, may (or may not) constitute the fabric of a completely new social, political, and economic future. How these processes and factors affect the governance and the protection of citizens’ rights (or vice versa) today, are questions that will be addressed not only in our main session, but also in our working groups, panel and sessions, which are traditionally hosted, in respectable number, at NISPAcee’s annual conferences.
The NISPAcee annual conference is expected to bring together scholars and experts of public administration and public policy, political science, economics, law and sociology as well as those of other related disciplinary areas. We count on, not only academics – both experienced and early stage researchers – but also on professionals in the field. We invite all interested colleagues to discuss the key issues of contemporary administrative development, drawing on different theoretical and methodological perspectives. NISPAcee continues to provide a forum for discussion and learning for CEE participants (including all countries covered by NISPAcee’s membership, the Russian Federation, Caucasus and Central Asia), and also participants from all over the world who are able to contribute the understanding of our key conference topics.
The Croatian Presidency of the EU council in the first half of 2020 will slightly direct our interest in the European aspects of the above problem complex, and provide a framework for strengthening the cooperation of European nations.
We hope that the city of Split, with its long history of more than 2000 years, from the times of ancient European democracies, will provide a nurturing and enlightening environment for each of us to engage in an inspiring exchange of views and ideas for times yet to come.
We are very much looking forward to meeting you all in Split.
