Call for papers:
Recent developments associated to the coronavirus crisis, financial markets governance risks, migratory and demographic trends, and geopolitical instability have brought to the fore with stringency the twin problem of vulnerability and resilience of public administration and governance systems. These developments have shown that focusing only on the efficiency of public administration and governance arrangements is not enough. Moreover, and even more concerning, it has become clear that, in some cases, the search for system-wide efficiency may undermine the resilience of the system. These realities pose a double challenge to the public administration and governance scholars and practitioners. On the one hand, it is necessary to develop better conceptual and theoretical foundations for thinking about the relationship between efficiency, vulnerability and resilience in public administration and governance. On the other hand, it is necessary to develop in practice, at the applied level, new public policy and institutional solutions able to deal with the problems of governance vulnerabilities and its resilience. The NISPAcee 2022 conference taking place in the aftermath of the global coronavirus crisis and cognizant of the shocks received by all - local, regional, national and international - public administration and governance systems, will aim to contribute to the response to these challenges.

The call for papers is open to all topics and all methods and approaches relevant for the theme: From conceptual and theoretical papers to case studies and policy and applied level assessments, from „large n” quantitative analysis to in-depth qualitative investigations, from individual contributions to panels, workshops and round tables, the conference will provide a forum for an open exchange of theoretical ideas and applied level experiences. A special attention will be given to the NISPAcee region. However, the conference will aim at the same time to integrate and connect the experience and perspectives emerging from countries of the NISPAcee region to the current global experience and perspectives regarding the issue of shocks, crises, vulnerability and resilience in public administration and governance.

From participants of this session full paper is required before the conference.
Deadline of full paper submission is 20th of April 2022.
