CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: Transformation of the role of the State and new instruments of public action
An international seminar on “Transformation of the role of the State and new instruments of public action” will be held on 5-6 May 2011 at University of Pretoria, Pretoria, South Africa.
Several recent evolutions in the public sphere have translated into major changes regarding the definition and implementation of public policies. They are characterized by renewed, multi-actor and multi-level institutional and governance frameworks. The seminar aims at responding to:
- What are the new instruments of public action?
- What are the renewed roles of the State?
- Which exercise in conceptual transfer or the need for new theories to analyze these renewed roles?
Abstracts for paper proposals (400 words maximum) should be send to:
