The IIAS Study Group on the Co-production of Public Services is organizing its ninth annual conference. Our aim is to create and nurture an intellectual platform for the theoretical discussion and empirical analysis of co-production and its implications for the organization and management of public services.
Earlier meetings organized by the study group established a small-scale, active, and sustainable network of scholars and practitioners focused on the co-production of public services. The study group provides a forum to discuss research on innovations in public service delivery that include citizen co-production. The study group has collaborated extensively to publish special issues in international public administration journals and a comprehensive book on co-production in a comparative international context. The study group seeks to promote close intercontinental collaboration among co-production scholars, including establishing joint research programs and developing a shared database of international case studies and survey data on co-production.
Co-production refers to the involvement of both citizens and public-sector professionals in the delivery of public services. Although countries differ in the extent to which citizens play a role in the provision of public services, the practice of co-production is gaining ground around the world.
The overarching goal of this study group meeting is to advance our conceptual, theoretical, and empirical understanding of co-production. To that end, we are particularly interested in papers that tackle the complexity of co-production in terms of frameworks for analysis, applications of relevant theory, and empirical study. We hope that through our work we can also contribute to an increased understanding of the practice of co-production.
The goal of this conference is to promote theory and ideas for new research emphasizing a comparative view of co-production. Thus, the main theme of this conference will be devoted to:
· Context (geographical, cultural, political, economic, inter-organizational networks)
· Actors (local government, politicians and bureaucrats, non-profit organizations, individual or organized citizens)
· Tools (ICT, media and various community platforms)
· Impact (on the community, providers, society, political and administrative leaders in (local) governments involved in coproduction initiatives and services)
While these and other questions can be addressed, we encourage all participants to think critically about how their research advances our conceptual, theoretical, and empirical understanding of co-production.
Studies that use innovative qualitative or quantitative methodological approaches are of particular interest. We also welcome a variety of disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches. Submissions are particularly encouraged from doctoral students working on the topic of co-production.
We are honoured to host Prof. Stephen Osborne from the University of Edinburgh Business School and Editor of 'Public Management Review' (PMR).
The meeting will consist of presentations of individual papers. Full papers will be made available to all participants in advance of the meeting to deepen the discussion. Each presenter will have an opportunity to discuss a paper of another colleague. The meeting will conclude with a roundtable conversation about the study group’s plans for intercontinental collaboration in co-production research. In addition, on the second day we will arrange an educational tour of the municipality of Haifa and see examples of co-production in action.
The meeting of the Study Group on the Co-Production of Public Services will take place at the University of Haifa, Israel from 19 – 20 May 2020.
The registration fee is 140 Euros. Participants are responsible for their own travel and accommodations. Registration details and information on accommodations will be available soon.
Participants will be notified of acceptance by 1 March 2020. Full papers should be submitted by 1 May 2020.
The IIAS study group on the Co-Production of Public Services is co-chaired by Trui Steen (KU Leuven, Belgium), Tina Nabatchi (Syracuse University, United States), and Dirk Brand (University of Stellenbosch, South Africa).

First Call for Papers for the 10th International Interdisciplinary Conference, to be held in Nairobi, Kenya on June 24 to 27, 2020 at Multimedia University of Kenya

Conference Venue: Multimedia University of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya
Sponsors: Multimedia University of Kenya, Kenya Scholars and Studies Association (KESSA), Centre for Democracy, Research and Development (CEDRED) and Multimedia University of Kenya and African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA)
The world needs proper strategies to ensure sustainable development so that future generations find the world a better place to live. Global environmental changes brought about by degradation and effects of climate change, destruction of forests, increasing desertification, war and conflicts, migration and terrorism have combined to lead to clamour for sustainable development. The destruction of carbon sinks and water towers have made sustainable development more urgent given the manner in which uncontrolled exploitation of resources has led to serious effects on the globe. Why has sustainable development become critical in the world today? What are the causes of climate change and how do they affect the quality of life on earth? How have various governments and the international community responded to effects of climate change? What are some of the efforts being deployed in saving the globe against effects of climate change? What are some of the efforts being made by various academic disciplines to address this? These are some of the issues that the conference will be seeking to address.
Organized and hosted by Multimedia University of Kenya, African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA) and the Centre for Democracy, Research and Development (CEDRED), this 10th International Interdisciplinary Conference will be held on June 24 to 27, 2020 at Nairobi, Kenya.

Manuscripts that further our knowledge on cultivating and retaining support from donors, members, and volunteers are encouraged. A wide variety of related topics are desired beginning with identifying prospects to deepening the commitment of supporters. Theoretical, empirical, and literature review articles (including meta-analyses) are welcome.
