On the occasion of this year's conference of the European Group for Public Administration (EGPA), Werner Jann, Geert Bouckaert and Jana Bertels will present the results of a web survey on the future of European Public Administration.
The survey was addressed to the participants of last year's EGPA conference in Toulouse and EGPA members who indentified the most important challenges, but also the most needed developments in the field in the next decades. Their answers reflect important positions and contradictions among European Public Administration scholars. The survey was conducted in the context of an ongoing project to develop common European Perspectives for Public Administration (EPPA).
