CFP Conference: Public Values and Politico-Administrative Cultures: Russian and International Contexts

Deadline: April 15, 2013

IPSA RC 48-Administrative Culture together with the Russian Association of Political Science cordially invite you to submit proposals for the seminar “Public Values and Politico-Administrative Cultures: Russian and International Contexts”, which will be held in the Saint-Petersburg State University, St.-Petersburg, Russia on June 21- 22, 2012.

This joint initiative arose due the growing academic demand for a discussion of theory of public values and new challenges for public administration and administrative culture.

The concept of “public value” can help to avoid the narrow and over-simplified approaches that have sometimes dominated in the past (PM and NPM) and it offers a useful way of setting out the ultimate goals of public administration reforms. It is especially important for public service reform because the public value theory does have the potential to prompt a different way of thinking and talking about these issues, as well as pointing towards some practical ways forward.

The seminar itself will be multidisciplinary in character and open to legal, philosophical, political, sociological and other perspectives. And the main goal of the seminar is to unite efforts of various scientific approaches to the public values research and to analyze contemporary tendencies of development of political and administrative cultures in Russia and in the world.

Working language is English and Russian.

The number of participants is 40.

Deadline for the applications is 15 April, 2013 (early application is welcome).

Information on the accepted proposals and the invitation letters will be sent since 30 April, 2013.

Please, send the abstract (200 words) with the information on yourself (name, university, position, contact tel., e-mail) to Liudmila Vedmetskaya: values.seminar2013@gmail.com

Coordinators: Rosamund Thomas (Cambridge University)
Leonid Smorgunov (St.Petersburg State University)
