Working group in English


Group 10. Public administration, management and governance English-speaking working group

This English-speaking panel, chaired jointly by Assistant Professor Sorin Dan and Professor Christoph Demmke from the University of Vaasa, will discuss papers and presentations in English on the theme of the conference as well as more generally on public administration, public management and public governance topics. With this panel we aim to give the opportunity to both Finnish and non-Finnish speaking scholars at all levels (PhD, post-doc as well as senior scholars) to present their work and papers in English in order to receive feedback and share ideas with other scholars who are working in Finland. We also aim to build a community of scholars who can share their ideas in English and in this way participate fully and benefit from the conference as well as beyond the conference.
