Place: 29th NISPAcee Annual Conference, Ljubljana, Slovenia
Date: October 21-23, 2021
Main theme of the conference: "Citizens' Engagement and Empowerment - The Era of Collaborative Innovation in Governance"
16 papers were presented in the frame of 5 working group sessions:
The participation of a relatively high number of PhD students is appreciated. The aim of the working group is to deliver research in the area of public finance and public financial management undertaken in the NISPAcee region and to support the publication of original research on the topic. In addition, it also helps to develop research-led policy recommendations on current questions of public finance and public finance management from different aspects at the local, national and international level in the region. While the working group focuses on public finance and public financial management undertaken in the NISPAcee region, we also accommodated two papers dealing with the effectiveness of government regulation, as the interconnected topic. Four papers focused on the impacts of the COVID 19 pandemic, with the focus on local government, public procurement and contactless payment of taxes. Two papers evaluated the transparency of both state budget and local government budgets. The topics of health care financing, procurement, personal income tax and global sovereign debt management and EU funds’ use were also presented.
