4th TED
Law and Public Management Revisited
9-11 February, Vienna, Austria, 2011 

There are several topics to address for this debate:
1. Theories and Practice of Law versus Management:
2. Law versus Public Management, the reform agenda:
- Legality vs. discretion: the role of courts and the pressure of public managers.
- Deregulation
- Transparency and public administration
- Speeding up administrative proceedings for effectiveness
- The issue of "Better regulation”
3. Institutional issues:
The institutional issues are interrelated with issues of PA reform.

Host Organisation : Chancellerie, Vienna, Austria. Vienna, with its very specific Legal
tradition – both in PA scholarship and PA practice – and the Austrian managerial experience as well, would be very suited to host a TED on this topic.

Target Group (recruiting and selection will be done by EGPA and by NISPAcee):
· top experts - responsibles from research institutes and some practitioners,
· young PhD students from EGPA and NISPAcee.

Format of the meetings:
· There’s going to be a limited number of participants (app. 40).
· There is a focus on dialogue and discussions. Therefore, there are no formal
presentations of papers; there are some keynotes to start a debate and participants
contribute with the elements of their research. There is a selection of people based
on research conducted and paper proposals. A selection of these papers will be
· In principle, there is a series of topics to be covered with co-chairs for the debates
after a key note per topic.

Organizing committee:
· Austria: Mag. Michael Kallinger, Head of department III/7 at the Federal Chancellery
(BKA- Chancellery) and Prof. Dr. Renate Meyer (Head of the Institute for Public
Management at WU)
· EGPA (related to the PSG Law and PA): Prof. Dr. Philip Langbroek (Utrecht
University) and Dr. Dacian C. Dragos (Babes Bolyai University Cluj Napoca)
· NISPAcee: Dr. Polona Kovač (University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Administration) and
Marton Gallen (István Széchenyi University)
