The Call for Papers
for the 2018 Annual Conference of the Asian Association
for Public Administration (AAPA)
Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta, Indonesia on March 22-23, 2018
At 4th Floor Convention Room Fisipol UGM
The 2018 AAPA Annual Conference will be jointly hosted by the Asian Association for Public Administration (AAPA), the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences at Universitas Gadjah Mada (FISIPOL UGM), the National Institute of Public Administration (LAN, Lembaga Administrasi Negara), the Indonesian Association for Public Administration (IAPA), and the Ministry of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform (Kemen PAN RB).
Main Theme: Reinventing Public Administration in a Globalized World: A Non-Western Perspective
The role of public administration in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is very important. There are many issues that have to be addressed to increase the quality of life in developing countries as targeted by SDGs: poverty and hunger, climate change, energy, consumption, marine resources, inequality, economic growth, ecosystems and environment, peace and justice, human settlements, water management, education for sustainable development and lifelong learning, food security, gender equality, industrial sustainability, good health and inclusive well-being, accountable and inclusive institutions, and the global partnership for sustainable development.
Related to these issues, questions may be raised on how effective the role of public administration is in each country in coping with the above problems. Most developing countries usually adopt a model of public administration from other developed countries. The way of managing development and public services has been based on a bureaucratic model adopted from western countries. In this conference, we will explore the other perspective of public administration by focusing on non-western perspectives.
1) Developing Theories of Non-Western Public Administrations
2) Exploring New Research Methods for Public Administration: beyond positivism
3) Culture (Ethics, Religion) and Public Administration
4) Strengthening Local Administration and Decentralization
5) Local Knowledge, Innovation and Public Policy
6) Social Architecture, Digital Governance and Human Values
We invite submission of abstracts and papers that reflect on the above issues from academics and practitioners. Please find below information about submitting your papers.
