Submissions are sought for the 2016 International conference of the Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management (APPAM):
Inequalities: Addressing the Growing Challenge for Policymakers Worldwide
London School of Economics, 13-14 June 2016
Deadline for submissions: 22 January 2016
Inequalities are a growing challenge within and between countries around the world. What do we know about the nature and sources of inequalities in important domains such as education, health, economic and social well-being, and rights? And what can – and should – policymakers do to address them? This international conference will provide the opportunity for policy researchers and analysts from around the globe to gather and share the latest research and knowledge on this pressing challenge.
APPAM welcomes submissions from an array of disciplines and methodologies, including public policy, economics, political science, public management, business, psychology, sociology, social policy, social work, education, health and public health, and encourages submissions that are diverse in terms of gender, race/ethnicity, country of origin, as well as disciplinary perspective. APPAM also encourages submissions that involve policy practitioners and policymakers as well as those working in both academic and other settings, such as think tanks, research organisations, etc.
