The International Research Society for Public Management (IRSPM) has become one of the leading international academic associations for advancing research on public management. IRSPM produces Public Management Review, a highly respected peer-reviewed journal dedicated to publishing the best in new developments in public management and public policy implementation.

The IRSPM annual conference, which is attended by around 500, is an important platform to exchange research findings and discuss new topics of emerging significance in public management.

The conference is also a platform where experienced researchers meet young researchers, and where practitioners can engage with academics. The conference is also an important vehicle for stimulating regional initiatives and encouraging special interest groups related to public management.

A distinctive feature of IRSPM is the extent to which we welcome and encourage the participation of New Researchers, including PhD students. Each conference contains a stream dedicated to presentations by and discussion of the work of doctoral students and early career researchers, who interact with leading scholars from across the international IRSPM community.

We welcome new participants in our conference and look forward to yoiur contribution to the development of our field of study and its wider impact on the well-being of society.
