There are no tags 0 comments


We are pleased to announce that, after 7 years of fruitful dialogue, th Euro-Mediterrannean Dialogue on Public Management has decided to expand its wing to cover a larger area : the Middle-East and North Africa (MENA) Region and as such, MED is becoming Eure MENA. 

The Euro MENA Dialogues of Public Management are the continuation of the Euro-Mediterranean dialogues of Public Management, MED, that have been held from 2008 to 2014.  They come from the need to expand the reflection on public management from the Mediterranean to the Arab Region.  EGPA and MENAPAR signed a strategic agreement to co-organize the Euro MENA every two years, alternating between the regions.  The Euro MENA will hence alternate with the MENAPAR conference and will be very similar in format.

Through the presentation of scientific research and professional testimonials, debates will be organized around workshops, roundtables on different themes.

The School of Public Affairs & Administration is a particularly important one to Rutgers – Newark as RU-N pursues its strategic vision as an anchor institution to the City of Newark and to Greater-Newark, and as a national leader in publically engaged scholarship and research.

The school’s strong interdisciplinary culture, 17 tenure and tenure-track faculty, 189 undergraduate majors, 554 MPA students, and 36 Ph.D. students, sit at the heart of RU-N’s mission.

As the academic and administrative leader for the school, the dean will set the standard for its intellectual engagement and accomplishment; provide strategic vision and operational leadership to all aspects of the academic and scholarly program, linking its vision, policies, and goals to the strategic vision for the university; and further foster an environment and community that supports the school’s faculty and students. In particular, the dean will assure that the school continues to serve its students with academic programs of the highest quality and effectiveness, promoting excellence through diversity in undergraduate and graduate programs and faculty recruitment. Supporting the university’s research mission, the dean will promote opportunities to advance the scholarly activities of the faculty, including helping secure extramural funding in support of faculty research.
