Northeast Conference on Public Administration 2013 Meeting

November 1 & 2 at the Trabant University Center at The University of Delaware

 

PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION IN AN INFORMATION SOCIETY:  OPPORTUNITIES, THREATS AND INTRIGUING POSSIBILITIES

The theme for NECoPA 2013 focuses on the emerging and enduring challenges facing public administration during a period of political and economic turmoil and great change as the transition to a global information society and open government continues.  We promise a stimulating and important conversation on the state of the profession and the opportunities, threats and intriguing possibilities in its future. These are challenging times to be in the public service.  Political and economic crises appear to be commonplace throughout the world. In the United States and in many parts of our global system, trust and confidence in government is threatened by a failure to deal effectively with public debt.  On the other hand, exciting developments such as the growth of transparency and open government, the rise of social media, involvement of citizens in government and the growing sophistication of performance management offer new and intriguing possibilities. The responses of public administrators to these challenges and their success at pursuing new possibilities will determine the state of the profession as time goes forth. This conference will serve to illuminate these myriad issues, and present innovative practices and approaches emerging in response to these real-life challenges.  Join an enthusiastic group of academics, practitioners, and students at the Trabant University Center at the University of Delaware. Discussing various challenges facing public administration and search for strategies and solutions that may help address these challenges.  The preliminary program is available here:  Preliminary Program
