International Seminar “Governance of Public Policy: Cultures and Regimes in Networking Contexts”
St. Petersburg, Russia, June 27-28, 2015
(English and Russian language)
IPSA RC 48-Administrative Culture together with the  Russian Political Science Association (RC on Comparative Politics)  cordially invite you to submit proposals for the international seminar “Governance of Public Policy: Cultures and Regimes in Networking Contexts”, which will be held at the Saint-Petersburg State University, St.-Petersburg, Russia on June 27-  28,  2015.

The two-day international seminar is organized for the purpose of determining the cultural and institutional perspectives of the new political science direction "Governance of Public Policy". The actuality of the seminar is determined by scientific and practical factors. The scientific actuality is related to search of foundations for handling processes of public policy rather than the systems of its organization. Practical actuality is determined by the need to push forward the academic constructed model of public policy regimes in direction of evaluation of public policy processes. The novelty of the project is defined by the opportunity to discuss innovative components of scientific subfield "governance of public policy" for the research and assessment of public policy process for  more governability and competitiveness of modern states in network and multi-cultural contexts. The plan is to publish the conference proceedings "Governance of  Public Policy", as well as the use of the results of the seminar in addressing methodological issues to policy sciences and  to improve teaching master's programs on public policy and administration.
The main topics for seminar discussion could be (but other topics may be offered also):
ü  Governance of public policy (GPP) as subfield of policy sciences
ü  Governability of public policy
ü  GPP in different contexts (multi-cultural, networking, decentralization, devolution, multi-level)

ü  Policy designs and GPP
ü  GPP and the different models of public policy process
ü  Political institutions of GPP
