The 2019 EROPA Conference will cover a range of issues in the theme of The Future of Public Administration: Rethinking Resilience, Equity, and Sustainability in the Region and Beyond

The Asia-Pacific region has recently been transformed into a global economic powerhouse and is showing no signs of slowing down. The region exudes so much potential for growth and development in the coming decades, yet it also faces multiple threats from various sources. In order to counter this, it needs to build resilience amid uncertainty and ensure that the gains of development will benefit everyone for generations to come. Such a goal would require long-term, strategic thinking, and holistic approaches. Thus, in order to ensure that progress is made in terms of politico-administrative, social, environmental and economic resilience, equity, and sustainability, discourse on these topics with regard to Public Administration needs to be amplified.
