ICPP5 is coming to Barcelona in 2021! The Call for Panels is open

The 5th International Conference on Public Policy (ICPP5) is coming to Barcelona in 2021! Jointly organized by the International Public Policy Association (IPPA) and IBEI, the Conference will take place at the Raval Building of the Universitat de Barcelona (UB), from June 30th to July 2nd, 2021 with a pre-conference at IBEI’s headquarters on June 29th. 

The Universitat de Barcelona (UB), the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (UPF) and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) also collaborate in the organization of this edition. IPPA and IBEI expect eminent researchers to present their work during plenary sessions and multi sessions. In the evening, social events will be organized, such as a Welcome Drink Reception or a Gala Dinner. 

Following the success of the previous editions of the Biennial International Conference on Public Policy (ICPP) (Grenoble 2013, Milan 2015, Singapore 2017, Montreal 2019 with more than 1300 attendees), the ICPP5 will become the most important international conference for Policy Research.

The Call for Panels for the ICPP5 is currently open until October 26, 2020. IPPA and IBEI invite all scholars to submit a panel proposal to participate in ICPP5.

The proposal should include:

  • a description of its general objective, the definition of its research question, and a justification of its scientific relevance. 
  • a "call for papers" detailing the type of papers expected for the panels. 

Every panel will be reviewed by the International Scientific Committee of ICPP on the basis of the panel description and research question.

If selected, the accepted panels will be published on IPPA website along with their presentations and research question, and the call for papers description. The panel chairs will directly manage the selection of the papers received during the call for papers and will be asked to accept from 4 to 15 papers according to their quality and relevance to the panel.

The panels can address any theoretical, methodological, or empirical research question and cover a large range of topics provided they are related to Public Policy. During the Conference, the panels will be divided into 1 to 3 sessions of 2h each and organized around paper presentations. To allow researchers to meet other peers and to discover new perspectives surrounding the same research questions, ICPP only accepts open panel proposalsMore information
