Event details

As austerity continues to bite, public services, public management and public administration are now almost unfashionable labels to attach to our fields of research. However, austerity means that research in these fields is as important as ever, if not more so. We find doctoral work on these themes in social policy, management, political science and sociology conferences, to name but a few. The Public Administration Committee of the Joint Universities Council is sponsoring this fifth doctoral workshop to bring together students who find themselves in many different communities and schools to share their work with others.

We invite papers from doctoral students on any theme related to the broad disciplines of public administration, management and policy. The workshop will be an opportunity to present research in its early stages, to report on progress in your fieldwork or to deliver a more developed paper outlining your emerging findings. There will also be sessions on preparing for your viva, careers and research funding.

To maximise the value of the conference and the doctoral stream, we will be asking participants to submit papers in advance. In return, we will undertake to read you papers and to provide detailed and constructive feedback in a supportive environment.

If you wish to attend or for more information, please email Mike Rowe with a 500 word abstract for a paper relating to your PhD (this could be a summary of your PhD project or of one of your chapters) by midday on Friday 21 July, 2017.

Attendance at the workshop is free and will include dinner on the evening after the workshop. Acceptance also brings with it free registration for the PAC Annual Conference which will take place at Nottingham Trent University on Wednesday 13 and Thursday 14 September. Finally, with acceptance we can offer up to £60 towards your accommodation costs.

For all enquiries about the conference, please contact Mike Rowe.
