The APPAM International Research Conference was developed in an attempt to focus on a specific policy concern shared by many countries, bringing global research and administrations together. The local partners of the host country, in conjunction with APPAM staff and committees, provide the setting for the sharing of comparative research.
The APPM International Research Conferences attract the best researchers from around the world and covers topical issues in the public policy community. The next conference, “Public Policy and Governance Beyond Borders," is in Brussels, Belgium and will take place in July 13 - 14, 2017. Proposal submissions for the 2017 International Conference will be accepted until January 31, 2017.
