Building Global Public Administration Knowledge: Perspectives from the Global South

What a great way to start 2024 by holding a webinar with close to 120 participants from around the world. This SANPA-SIPG webinar was held on 28 January 2024 and moderated by SANPA President Professor Akhlaque Haque. Global scholars James Perry, Akhlaque Haque, Kim Moloney, Shahjahan Bhuiyan, Aisha Azhar, Dr. Amir Nasrullah, and Alex Brillantes Jr discussed and debated how to build collaboration to create global knowledge on public administration. James Perry presented a very thought-provoking note that invoked critical discussions from the panelists. We thank our partners, SIPG, EROPA, ACSH, UNPAN, BCGD, PAAN, and AAPA, for their support. Special gratitude to EROPA for ensuring high attendance.
