The organisers of the Sixth Euro Mediterranean Dialogue of Public Management (MED 6) have opened a new call for papers, looking look for research and current work on public management in the Euro-Mediterranean area, especially on the theme "Cultures for change, changes through culture."
Proposals for papers (two-page summary in English or French) should be submitted by 13 May 2013. The doctoral workshop will take place on October 9 at MED 6 conference in Marseille, France.
MED 6 is organized by the European Group for Public Administration (EGPA), Institute of Public Management and Territorial Governance (IMPGT) - Aix Marseille University and National School of Administration, Strasbourg (ENA). The European Training Foundation is a partner of the Euro Mediterranean Dialogues, and last September the ETF held a regional conference in Jordan in conjunction with the Euro Mediterranean Dialogue of Public Management.
The Euro-Mediterranean Dialogues on Public Management, MED, aim to be the place for exchange of best practices, ideas and analyses on Public Management, which prevail in each country in the Mediterranean. Gathering officials, practitioners, academics as well as researchers, MEDs intend to:
- Promote exchanges and cooperation between public actors in the Mediterranean;
- Strengthen the community of young researchers, future elite of public managers and academics in the Mediterranean
- Provide an opportunity for young people to consolidate their experiences in professional networks
- Facilitate exchange of ideas and proposals for improving Public Management practices in the Mediterranean
- Promote the richness of Aix-Marseille University and our region with our partners and participants
- The Euro-Mediterranean Dialogues on Public Management intend to develop new institutional partnerships and to establish a sustainable Euro-Mediterranean dimension between the North, the South and the Arab countries in integrating new people and new perspectives.
