The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers from all over the world with an interest on public policy, to reinforce the exchanges between them and to participate to the update production of knowledge.
Public policy has become an established focus of scholarly attention over the last 50 years. Participants have come from a range of disciplines, including political science, public administration, geography, sociology, economics and law among others and have been involved in a variety of inter and multi-disciplinary areas. This conference proposes to join all researchers who work on public policy among their approaches and topics.
During this conference, opportunities will be provided for both junior and senior researchers to present and discuss new research, theoretical, conceptual and methodological insights and empirical findings through a system of panels and workshops with audience participation and to discuss some common papers by a system of conference speakers and plenary discussions.
