CALL FOR PAPERS – International Public Policy Association, Singapure 2017

Submissions are now open for the panel “From voice to influence; how social media help shape public policy” (T18P05) for the International Conference on Public Policy, in Singapore, 2017.  This group aims to discuss empirical and/or theoretical approaches on ways in which social media can influence public policy, civic relations and political participation.

 Having considered the massive use of social media specifically as a new arena of public debate and the possibilities opened to public administration, we encourage the submission of proposals that analyze the influence of social media on the full cycle of public policy from elaboration, implementation, impact analysis, feedback and improvement. We also welcome proposals that introduce new methods to monitor social media, with a focus on evaluation and the amelioration of policies.

 The papers must be submitted through the conference´s website ( )

 Deadline. January 15th, 2017
