First National Conference on Governance and Public Policy


About the Conference

The first “Governance and Public Policy Conference” will be held with the aim of gathering and exchanging views from various fields of research including public administration, public policy, political science, law, economics and sociology. The goal is to provide a ground for presenting the latest issues, trends, initiatives in public administration as an interdisciplinary subject.
The process of public policy in Iran has shown successes and challenges. The sharing of these experiences, on the one hand, and the presentation of the latest scientific achievements in this field, on the other hand, provide a unique opportunity for analyzing public policy in Iranian context. Reviewing case studies in different subjects will allow policy makers to hear the opinions of experts in that area and help them make decisions for future.
