Call for Proposals

APPAM 2019 International Conference:
Public Policy in an Era of Rapid Change
July 29 - 30, 2019
Barcelona, Spain

There are new and emerging global challenges that warrant pragmatic and evidence-informed policy responses. Major political changes have been occurring on both sides of the North-Atlantic and other parts of the world, and new political forces have appeared that have impacted the context in which policies are being developed. These new realities create tremendous opportunities for public and social policies that respond to an array of political, economic, and social changes. Moreover, the beginning of the twenty-first century has been the spectacular growth of social inequalities among and within countries. Each of these challenges have had an enormous impact on the quality of life, social well-being, and health populations, in addition to economic and political impacts.


Submissions will be solicited in the following policy areas for the 2019 conference. These areas are similar to traditional APPAM policy areas but have been broadened to include global framing for these issues. Papers that utilize a comparative policy lens between countries are also especially welcomed.


We are soliciting abstracts for

  1. individual papers to be integrated into panels;
  2. panels made up of 4-5 papers;
  3. roundtables; and
  4. posters

Abstracts for individual papers and posters should be between 150 and 250 words; if a panel of papers is proposed there should be a summary of each paper plus an overarching description of the panel and its importance. Descriptions for roundtables should be between 150 and 250 words, plus a listing of participants and a summary of their contributions.
