WIPCAD well represented at IPSA World Congress in Poznan, Poland, July 2016

WIPCAD was well represented with 7 papers and one panel chair at the 24th World Congress of Political Science on 23-28 July 2016 in Poznan, Poland. With almost 3000 participants and 633 sessions, the biannual conference of the International Political Science Association is among the largest conventions of the discipline.


WIPCAD doctoral researcher Duygu Sonat not only presented her paper "Building trust takes more than two: the impact of program design on caseworker-beneficiary relationships" in the panel "Making sense together: specialized knowledge and collective understanding in the policy process", but also chaired the panel "Governing Across Jurisdictions".

Ina Radtke, fellow of WIPCAD’s third cohort, presented two papers: Organisational change as striving for legitimacy - The Case of the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees in the panel ”Vertical and Horizontal Administrative Interplay in the EU – Convergence, yes or no?”, and Necessity is the Mother of Invention? Traditional and Novel Coordination Means and the Immigration Crisis in Germany, co-authored with Julia Fleischer, in the panel "Organizing for Societal Security and Crisis Management: Governance Capacity and Legitimacy".

Basanta Thapa, also of WIPCAD’s third cohort, presented the paper “Foreshadowing Data-driven Governance – The Discursive Construction of Big Data Analytics for Government” in the panel “Public Administration and the Digital Turn”.

WIPCAD alumnus Robert Gaede, now at Hertie School of Governance, contributed the paper “Reforming Financial Market Regulation: Comparing and Theorizing Organizational Responses to the Financial Crisis” to the panel “The Administrative Dimension of Financial Market Regulation”.

WIPCAD associated doctoral researchers Jana Bertels and Lena Schulze-Gabrechten presented a co-authored paper on “Internal Structural Dynamics of German Federal Portfolios: How do the Ministry of the Interior and the Federal Foreign Office Deal with Complexity?” in the panel “The Structure and Organization of Government (SOG-PRO Project): Theoretical Perspectives and Empirical Evidence”.

Lena Schulze-Gabrechten also contributed a single-author paper on “Structural Responses after Disaster: Subnational Governments’ Organization for Crisis Management in Germany” in the panel "Organizing for Societal Security and Crisis Management: Governance Capacity and Legitimacy".

Beyond the conference panels, social events like the Polish Evening hosted by the Adam Mickiewicz University and a dinner sponsored by the IPSA Research Committee on the Structure and Organisation of Government offered plentiful opportunities to network with likeminded researchers from all over the world.
