2018 IASIA LAGPA Conference, 23-26 July in Lima, Peru



The organization of an annual IASIA conference is a project consisting of several elements (scientific preparation - mobilization of a network - practical organization), which requires constant dialogue between IASIA, the IASIA/IIAS Secretariat, and the host institution (IASIA member).

The conference brings together practitioners, academics, PhD students and young researchers in public administration and management, as well as contributors from any other disciplines who exchange on a chosen theme. The theme selected for the conference is a topic of major concern for public administration and management.



The objectives of the Conference are:

  • organize and encourage the production and exchange of knowledge on the evolution of the theory and practice of public administration;
  • promote comparative studies and the development of public administration theory;
  • facilitate innovation in ideas, methods and techniques in public administration;
  • strengthen dialogue between academics and practitioners;
  • facilitate the development and consolidation of a community of public administration experts open to young researchers and public officials.

To achieve these objectives,

the annual conference is organized around several activities. The opening day of the meeting is devoted exclusively to consideration of this theme. The remainder of the conference is devoted to the consideration of current and ongoing topics and concerns of the several working/research groups
of the Association:

  • Plenary sessions
  • Special panels/forums
  • Working Groups' sessions
  • PhD seminar
