GMU-SNU BK21 2020 Conference
Date: February 5 - 6, 2020
Time: 9:00AM - 5:00PM (both days)
Location: Van Metre Hall, Arlington Campus

Society is changing rapidly, and governments around the world are struggling to identify and address the challenging governance issues that confront society. These issues include, but are not limited to, economic growth and inequality, sustainable growth, democratic governance, public service access, corruption, and bureaucratic autonomy. Moreover, the issues that society is confronting today are beyond the capacity of any single government to address. Against this backdrop, the purpose of this conference is to convene a group of international scholars to discuss strategies for governing. The BK2020 Conference will create a space for a diverse group of academics to share their insight on how governments are addressing or can address the complex range of problems societies face. The BK2020 Conference builds upon successful prior events held in collaboration with Arizona State University in 2019 and Bocconi University in 2018.

i. We will have presentations from diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives on topics related to public policy and management. These topics will include, but are not limited to: sustainable development, discrimination in public service delivery, citizen trust in government, government accountability and corruption, economic policy, policy process, and human resource management.
