Call for Papers — PPN 2018 in Singapore

Dear Colleagues:

On behalf of the organising committee, we are pleased to announce the call for papers for the Second Annual Meeting of the Singapore-based Public Policy Network. Based on the model of the Australian and other similar successful public policy networks around the globe, the Singapore PPN provides a venue for faculty at Singapore’s post-secondary institutions interested in public policy to present their work and engage in discussions with colleagues from around the region.

This year’s conference will be held on Monday 29th of January at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the Bukit Timah campus of the National University of Singapore.

Although based in Singapore, the conference is open to papers, roundtable and panel proposals on all topics within the policy sciences and is not restricted to subjects related to Singapore.

Proposals for papers and panels may deal with any issue or topic of interest to policy scholars dealing with local, national and international events in the region and elsewhere, or with theoretical, conceptual or methodological subjects related to policy studies.

Abstracts of up to 300 words, with paper title and author’s affiliation and contact details should be submitted via email to:

Please note submissions close Nov 30, 2017.

More information on the conference and how to register is available on the PPN website at:

Please join us for a stimulating set of presentations in January.
