The Euro-MENA Dialogue is a conference resulting from the strong collaboration between the EGPA and the MENAPAR, aiming to bring together diverse public bodies, scholars and practitioners, research institutions and private corporations to participate and network for the benefits of knowledge exchange, and sharing lessons from practices across and between European and MENA/Arab countries as well as to reach a better understanding of the histories of both regions as they relate to public administration.

This conference aims to strengthen cooperation between European and MENA academics and practitioners. The dialogue aims to share the different conceptions of Public Administration between the European and Middle East and North Africa zones and to exchange ideas about the various PA and PM traditions, approaches, practices and developments (Arab and European conceptions of Public Administration, Public Management developments and PA disciplines and identify specific issues to be further discussed). The main purpose of the dialogue is better understand each other and share common concerns about PA developments in the different regions.

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. The Euro MENA is organized every two years.

From 2018, each Euro MENA Dialogue will now propose two themes for the call for papers:

  • a repeating one aiming at building, Dialogue after Dialogue, a global reflexion on Governance and Public Administration in Euro MENA Zone
  • a one-time theme seeking to question different public management issues

Euro MENA Dialogues address civil servants, practitioners, as well as all experts in public management and researchers coming from social sciences and humanities.
