2016 APPAM Fall Research Conference
All Day Event
The APPAM Fall Research Conference is a multi-disciplinary annual research conference that attracts the highest quality research on a wide variety of important current and emerging policy and management issues. The conference is comprised of panels, roundtables, workshops, symposia, and poster presentations and is designed to encourage substantive interaction among participants.
2016 Conference Theme: The Role of Research in Making Government More Effective
APPAM's mission is to improve public policy and management by fostering excellence in research, analysis, and education. The annual Fall Research Conference is the association's premier forum for disseminating research findings and engaging in discussions with policy makers and other practitioners about the implications of those findings for improving policy and governance. If research is to play a greater role in making government more effective, these types of interactions and exchanges between researchers and those in a position to apply the research evidence need to be ongoing, collaborative and far-reaching at all levels of government.
What are the mechanisms that we are using and developing to promote more effective use of research evidence in policymaking and public management? What opportunities exist or new partnerships could be forged to support greater collaboration in generating and applying research evidence? Alternatively, what constrains the production and use of research? What changes could we make in funding and administrative structures, regulations or other aspects of research relationships to boost public returns to research investments? Two of the Fall Research Conference symposia will feature prominent policy domains where research has played a major role in influencing public policy and management: education, acknowledging the 50th anniversary of the Coleman report, Equality of Educational Opportunity, and welfare reform, recognizing the 20th anniversary of the most comprehensive reform of our welfare policies to date.
Registration information will be available in mid-July.
