14th Annual Conference of the International Research Society for Public Management (IRSPM)

Prof. Stephen Osborne, University of Edinburgh Business School, UK, President of the Board

The global financial crisis has had a tremendous impact: Billions of tax dollars are being spent around the world. The consequences of these major government actions will take some years to be fully visible. One thing is for certain: The role of government will be reshaped. Can public management cope with this degree of change? What instruments are being implemented and what will be their consequences? Two panels will focus on this main topic of the conference. In addition the Berne conference will host a number of other panels and tracks covering a wide variety of public management topics.

Prof. Reto Steiner, Head local organizing comittee,

We are very pleased to welcome you to the 14th annual IRSPM Conference in Berne, the Swiss Capital. We will be offering you a broad choice of up-to-date papers and debates focused on the conference’s main topic: The Crisis: Challenges for Public Management. In addition to the academic content of the conference we have arranged a rich social program in order to ensure you a most enjoyable stay in Switzerland.
