I am organizing and chairing the Public Administration Discussion Meetings at the Higher School of Economics. The meetings take place every month. The first meeting was held in September 2015 when Jesse Campbell, who is now with Incheon National University in South Korea, and I started as a “closed shop” of some 10-20 people from the School of Public Administration. We are grateful for the encouragement from Professor Alexei Barabshev who wholeheartedly supported the new series. Meanwhile, the meetings are open to researchers and students from across all disciplines with an interest in the latest research on public administration. Registration is not required; however, if you do are not a member of HSE please contact me before an upcoming event.
