    26th - 30th June 2017, London, UK

The ICPS 10th Public Administration Reform Symposium will focus on the theme “Promoting a Responsive, Inclusive and Accountable Public Administration”. For those wishing to complete the five-day Professional Certificate, this will incorporate the high-level Symposium and three subsequent days of intensive training. Delegates can opt to attend the Symposium on its own, or to attend the full five-day event.

The Symposium (26th - 27th June 2017)

The UN recently published its latest version of the World Public Sector Report which analysed how having more responsive, inclusive and accountable public sector institutions worldwide would make a significant impact on reaching the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Member States now have the responsibility of turning the collective vision into reality for their citizens. Through recent social and technical innovations, more collaborative governance can be achieved with the support of effective, efficient, accountable, inclusive, equitable and responsive public institutions.

This 10th Public Administration Reform Symposium will look at current best practice, the latest thinking and trends from around the world.

Areas to be discussed will include:
  • Towards a More Responsive and Inclusive Public Administration
  • Approaches to Greater Civic Engagement and Participation
  • Social Equity Practices in Public Administration
  • Effective Ways of Interweaving Public, Private and Nonprofit Sectors
  • Optimising the Impact of Modern Communication Methods for Effective Public Administration

As always, there will be a wide range of speakers and many opportunities for delegates to network, discuss, listen and put forward their own views and experiences for others to hear and learn from over the course of the event.

The Professional Certificate (26th - 30th June 2017)

While the Symposium will look at some of the current challenges facing those involved in Public Administration Reform, the “Professional Certificate in Strategic Public Administration” will then go into more depth and critically evaluate the strategic planning and delivery of public administration. Drawing on lessons from international case studies, participants will analyse both the successes and failures in delivering public service and consider how to influence and change policy. Participants will also learn how to manage organisational change, facilitate stakeholder collaboration, and evaluate the performance of public administration.

The programme is designed to build upon the issues raised throughout the symposium through discussions with peers and subject specialists. Participants who attend the full five-day programme will be eligible to attain the Chartered Management Institute Professional Certificate in Management and Leadership.
