  • Title: About the Conference
    Descriptive info: Untitled Page.. ABOUT THE CONFERENCE.. General aim and expected outcomes of the Conference.. The general aim of the conference is to explore and discuss recent trends and developments in the public administration and public policy in broader framework of the European integration processes.. The presentation of theoretical and research papers will serve as an impetus for the exchange of ideas among invited academics and researchers, as well as the PhD students for whom the PhD workshop will be organized.. A certain number of the practitioners will be invited to offer practitioners view on the debated issues.. The principal outcome of the conference will be strengthening the links among researchers in the public administration and public policy field, especially with regard to regional research networks (South-Eastern Europe, Eastern Europe, Mediterranean area) and broader European network, as well as the contributing to the theoretical and methodological development of public administration and public policy research, with the focus on Europeanization studies.. The framework of the conference rests upon the exploration of the interrelatedness of administration and policy, stability and change, old and new agendas, structure and process and other dichotomies of politico-administrative system.. The quality papers will be invited for publication in Croatian and Comparative Public Administration and Annals of Croatian Political Science.. Conference theme.. Europeanization of public administration and public policy is constantly evolving area of research and theory.. Under different strands of neo institutional theory a significant part of scholarly research tried to explain the effect of the European Union on public administration (top-down Europeanization), as well as the creation of European level ideas, norms, and values implemented through European level structures and practices (top-down Europeanization).. A part of the research is firmly grounded on organization theory, cultural studies, legal theory and others.. Similarly, in public policy research and theory, different concepts and approaches have been used to explain policy design and implementation in Europe, such as, neoinstitutional theory, rational choice theory, network theory, interpretative policy analysis and others.. The convergent and divergent patterns and results were detected and attributed to various factors, such as administrative structure, political system formation etc.. The conference aim is to present and analyse different topics discussing interrelatedness of European integration development and the changes of public administration reform and practices, as well as policy development and implementation.. We welcome descriptive and explanatory papers, based on different methods (quantitative and qualitative research, including case studies) and theoretical accounts (neoinstitutional, organizational, network theory, interpretative policy analysis, etc.. ).. A comparative dimension of the papers is welcome, and the comparison ought not to be restricted to the European countries, but also to the Mediterranean area countries and other countries as well.. In addition, special types of Europeanization could be studied and discussed, according to the geographical or cultural clusters of states.. The EU (and other European organizations, such as Council of Europe) might be conceptualized as independent, dependent or intervening variable.. However, the conference contributions should  ...   regional units;.. implementation process of social policy in European countries (but not exclusively) and in the EU, detecting variations, convergent and divergent trends and outcomes, as well their causes; specific focus on results and prospects for comparative research on the implementation process in social policy field on macro, mezzo and micro level.. what kind of effect or trends might be detected with regard to the human factor in public administration, especially with regard of professional public administration (HRM, ethics and integrity), political steering (leadership) and new trends (political advisors, etc.. ); Has the balance changed and in which direction and how does this change reflect the power dispersion?.. what are the trends in the relationship between citizens and private sector on one hand, and the public administration on the other, with regard to the citizens rights and their influence on policy formulation and implementation; is the complex governance mechanism making them more distant and what is the role of politics in this respect; what rules and procedures are the expression of the convergent trends.. what is the impact of economic and fiscal crisis on the public administration reform and public administration in general? What kind of austerity measures affect public administration and what is their impact on the effectiveness and other administrative principles and values? Is there any common pattern among European countries? How can this pattern be explained? To what extent has the crisis affected the EU administration?.. Conference format.. The main Conference will be organized in the format of chaired sessions during two and a half days (5th, 6th and 7th April).. In each session up to four papers will be presented by the paper givers, and discussed by one academic.. The first day of the conference will be dedicated to the PhD workshop(s), depending of the number of applications, in which doctoral students of public administration and/or public policy will be able to present their current research framework and concepts and receive feedback from academics and other students.. Selection procedure, submission of papers and important deadlines..
