International Conference: Sustainable Development in the Context of Conflicts and Crises

The Department of Public Administration at the Faculty of Law and Public Administration is organizing an international scientific conference on April 23-24, 2019 at Birzeit University.

Experts, scholars and students from different countries around the world will gather to ask a critical question on How can we achieve sustainable development amid the current conflicts and crises?

The conference will tackle theoretical and practical issues in the field of public administration, public policies and sustainable development, especially topics related to the implementation of the United Nations Development Goals 2030. The conference will explore case studies and models that have existed under conditions of wars, crises and occupation such as the Palestinian cause.

A scientific committee will evaluate the submitted papers proposals to choose distinguished papers to be presented at the conference. The Department of Public Administration aspires to develop distinguished papers into policy papers that can be used by countries and communities living under similar conditions, in order to advance effective sustainable development models.
