  • International Conference 2020 Digital Governance in South and South East Asia

    International Conference 2020Digital Governance in South and South East AsiaLessons, Challenges and OpportunitiesVenue: North South University, Dhaka, Bangladesh • Date: 20-21 June, 2020Call for PapersInformation and communication technologies (ICT) have tremendous potential to enhance the lives of people in general and, particularly, those in developing countries.For about a decade, use of technology in governance has introduced a new paradigm of service delivery. During the recent years Digital Governance has emerged as an effective tool and process of participation, accountability and inclusive governance aiming to install a system “whole of governance” in the developing countries. It has also begun to change existing state society relations and strengthened and institutionalized the concept of “whole of governance“in those countries. This leads to better service delivery, motivating people to participate in governance processes, ensuring efficiency, accountability and transparency. In a globalised world, it is now recognized as a tool for transforming the relations between citizens, businesses, and other organs of government.Digital Governance ensures that citizens can participate in, and influence decision-making processes which affect them and pro-actively decide what they want and its quality as well governance processes which can best deliver them. Faster expanding computerisation and internet connectivity has attracted governments in the region to re-engineering of business processes for quicker and quality service delivery to citizens, business and the society. The ongoing Digital Governance process is also considered appropriate for achieving the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Digital Governance is thus creating a paradigm shift in the public sector as well as transforming societies across the world. While the state remains the key actor, the other actors also need to participate and network amongst themselves to enable the society reap full benefits of technological as well as innovations. It opens up avenues for development of societies and ensuring better service to citizens, and also creates challenges for many governments as well as private sector and citizens.Countries of South East Asia are at the forefront of digital developments in fields of governance, entertainment, and e-commerce. Singapore, South Korea and China are leaders in the area of Digital Governance in the region. In the context of South Asia, India and Bangladesh have taken initiatives to utilize ICT to deliver better services to the people. However, are all countries in the region taking advantage of Digital Governance?Do nations have same experiences, capacities and resources to make it work? Can they learn from experiences of other countries? What are the barriers? What works and what doesn’t and why? Does the public and private sector have different views and utilize Digital Governance differently? Or is there is convergence? Will Digital Governance enable nations and their citizens to reach desired goals and transform their lives? Is Digital Governance changing state society relations? These questions need answers and sharing of views and experiences.In this context, theSouth Asian Institute of Policy and Governance of North South University,Bangladesh in collaboration with Information and Communication Technology Division, Government of People’s Republic of Bangladesh and the Department of Administration and Organization of University of Bergen, Norway is arranging a Conference on 20-21 June, 2020 in Dhaka on‘Digital Governance in South and South East Asia: Lessons, Challenges and Opportunities.Conference ThemesThe Conference committee is inviting papers from scholars, researchers, practitioners Government agencies, civil society members and graduate students across the globe to share knowledge, experiences, and learning in context of Digital Governance in the region with the aim to capitalize on the use of digital technology in ensuring quality of service delivery and streamlining the overall governance processes on the following thematic areas:● Evolution and Current Trends in Digital● Digital Governance and Changing Governance Ideas of Public Sector● Social Media and Digital Governance:Ethical and Accountability Issues● Innovations and Entrepreneurship Ethical and Accountability Issues in an Era of Digitalisation● Big Data and Public Governance● Digital Governance and SDGs:Strategies and Challenges● Public Policy and Digital Governance Strategies and ChallengesKey Note SpeakerProfessor Kim Normann Andersen is Study Program Director for the IT-focused bachelor and master programs at the Department of Digitalization at Copenhagen Business School (CBS), of University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

It was originally constructed around “256 BC” by the State of Qin as a water conservation and flood control project. Li Bing, then governor of Shu for the state of Qin, and his son headed the construction of the Dujiangyan, which harnessed the river using a new method of channeling and dividing the water rather than simply following the old way of dam building. He constructed an artificial levee (dike: Fish Mouth Levee) to redirect a portion of the river's flow and then to cut a channel through Mount Yulei to discharge the excess water upon the dry Chengdu Plain beyond.

  • IRSPM Annual Conference in the Hong Kong SAR of China on April 13-15, 2016

    Annual Conference of the International Research Society for Public Management (IRSPM)The 20th IRSPM Annual Conference at the City University of Hong Kong and the Polytechnic University of Hong Kong in the Hong Kong SAR of China on April 13 (Wednesday) - 15 (Friday), 2016The content of public management has always been evolving, and even more so in the last two decades. We have witnessed the drastic expansion of the public management realm in terms of academics and policies and practices. For example, through contracting-out and co-production, public organizations have extended their collaborative governance by involving more third parties across sectoral boundaries (i.e., citizens private and non-profit). Furthermore, more city and local governments have built globalized partnerships with counterparts in different countries. These complicated changes have brought up many difficult but meaningful questions to public management scholars, and simultaneously driven scholars to carry out more interdisciplinary research with those in adjacent fields (e.g., political science, management, psychology, and sociology). Practical challenges have stimulated scholarly debate and presented a great opportunity for the discipline to transform and move forward. The IRSPM 2016 therefore aims to explore these broad topics to address these changes, under the title “Collaborative, Globalized and Interdisciplinary: Moving the Public Management Debate Forward.”IRSPM 2016 Contacts: http://www.cityu.edu.hk/lamp/irspm/index.aspAcademic Issues: Mr. Benny CHAN and individual panel chairsEx Ordo Technical Issues: The IRSPM 2016 Conference uses EX Ordo to manage paper submissions.
