Civility in Government - Call for Proposals [Conference]
Check out this call for proposals from the Evergreen Chapter of the American Society for Public Administration.
The Evergreen Chapter of ASPA in partnership with the University of Washington is hosting a conference in Seattle, WA on October 10 and 11 on civility in government. Entitled ‘Civil Discourse to Resolve Government Crises’ the conference is inviting practitioners, scholars and students to submit proposals for consideration of inclusion. The conference will be focused on whether a more civil discourse on public policy issues can help governments better resolve issues.
Practitioners who can demonstrate the impact of civility on government or scholars with an interest and background on governance and how governing is affected by the approach to civility are particularly invited to submit proposals.
Proposals must be submitted electronically to Steve Benowitz at firstname.lastname@example.org by May 24. Proposals are limited to one page and must include the author’s name, affiliation and contact information as well as title of proposed paper or presentation. There is a limit of two authors for each proposal and any one author may submit no more than two proposals. Submissions may not have been published previously or under consideration for publication elsewhere.
Proposals should also include:
What issues the author will examine and how the paper complements the program’s goals
What outcomes the author expects form the research and writing and how it will enlighten both the conference attendees and a larger audience.
