Jointly organised by a European and American network on public sector ethics, the conference aims to strengthen co-operation among European and US scholars on the topic. All relevant aspects of administrative ethics will be discussed and particular attention will be given to the similarities and differences, both in theory and practice, between Europe, the US and other parts of the world.
At the core of the conference will be 5 workshops. These will be jointly chaired by an American and European convenor and will consist of an internationally mixed audience of scholars. The organising committee also welcomes doctoral students, who pay a discounted registration fee. All participants to the conference will be expected to subscribe to one workshop and to participate actively in the sessions of that workshop.
The organising committee of the conference invites papers on the topics of the five workshops. An overview of the workshops, their chairs and their contents can be found here. The more the proposal fits into the outline of a workshop, the higher the chance that it will be accepted. It is therefore highly recommended to specify to which workshop the proposal is submitted.
Workshop directors decide on the acceptance/refusal of paper proposals at their discretion. As a minimum rule, single case studies can only be considered on the condition that they go beyond mere description and are embedded in a theoretical framework. Comparative research is particularly welcomed.
Paper proposals should contain:
the title of the paper
a short description of the contents of the paper (maximum 1 page)
the name and number of the workshop (recommended, but not mandatory)
name, affiliation, and contact information of the author(s)
Paper proposals should be sent before February 15th, 2005 to the e-mail address shown below. They will then be forwarded to the workshop chairs.
