CALL for PAPERS
Symposium: Public Administration Education in Asia
Myung Hun Jin, Virginia Commonwealth University (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Journal of Public Affairs Education invites papers for a special symposium on topics related to The Role of Higher Education and Training of Public Administration in Asia.
In most Asian countries, the domain of public administration continues to be influenced by postcolonial modernization led by Western nations (Carino, 1991; Kim, 2017). The Western models of administrative practices and teaching have, however, often been ineffective because of their incompatibility with the indigenous Asian contexts (Haque, 2013). The education and training of Public Administration as a discipline in higher education institutions, therefore, requires critical re-examination in the Asian countries.
While the demands for dealing with the challenges of modernization without compromising their cultural heritage necessitate viable solutions, finding different and innovative ways of educating and training not only the general public but the next generation of public servants in Asia remains unresolved.
Against this backdrop, the symposium welcomes proposals addressing the needs for and the strategic development of higher education in Public Administration in Asia. Research papers may provide insights into the Public Administration Education research in Asia addressing questions, including but not limited to:
- What role does a degree in public administration have in South Korea, China, Japan, Thailand, the Philippines, or elsewhere in Asia?
- What are higher education institutions in Asia doing to reinvent public administration education and training to showcase their unique curricula practices?
- What successes and/or concerns do you see in Asia for designing a unique local public administration curriculum without compromising diversity?
- What are the points of view in public administration and public management curricula from which the higher education institutions in the West can learn?
- The number of public administration programs in Asia that have received NASPAA accreditation is slowly increasing. What are some perspectives that need to be considered as NASPAA expands its region of accreditation?
- What innovative methods, broadly defined, should be adopted to achieve higher stands and quality of higher education in public administration throughout Asia?
Papers must meet the standards of good scholarship by building on previous literature, making a significant contribution, and offering support for claims made. For information about the Journal of Public Affairs Education and manuscript guidelines, please visitwww.JPAEjournal.com.
