Organisation by ALGA of UCLG Africa of the 22nd Annual Conference of the International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration in Rabat from 25-29 July 2022
The IASIA 2022 Conference will take place in Rabat, Morocco on July 25-29, 2022, and will be organized by the International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA), the United Cities and Local Governments of Africa (UCLG Africa), and the African Local Governments Academy (ALGA) in partnership with the Faculty of Legal, Economic, and Social Sciences – Agdal of Mohammed V de Rabat.
The main theme of the Conference is: “Implementing and Promoting Effective Governance Principles to Leave No One, No Place Behind” which includes the 11 Principles on Effective Governance designed by United Nations’s Committee of Experts on Public Administration (UN-CEPA) and endorsed/adopted by ECOSOC for sustainable development. The need for effectiveness has been emphasised, namely competence, sound policymaking and collaboration. Another critical focus area is accountability with integrity, transparency and independent oversight being the critical components. The concentration on inclusiveness underscores the notion of leaving no one behind through non-discrimination, participation, subsidiarity and intergenerational equity which are imperative for the sustainability of future generations.
The conference will bring together practitioners, academics, PhD students and young researchers in public administration and management, as well as contributors from other disciplines who will engage in current debates and discussions during the various:
• Plenary sessions.
• Special panels/forums and
• Permanent and ad-hoc Working Groups’ sessions.
We would like to invite you to submit your abstracts on the focus areas of the different permanent working groups of IASIA, detailed below, as well as the main conference theme. All abstracts have to be in English; however, the main conference theme track can be in either English or French.
