The Structure and Organisation of Government (SOG) is a research committee of the International Political Science Association. SOG was established as a study group with IPSA in 1988, later becoming Research Committee 27. The group's primary focus is the comparative study of executive branches and their changing roles in public policy making. At the centre of this focus are the dynamics of public bureaucracies and their relations with political executives and interests in civil societies, hence the title of its journal: Governance: An International Journal of Policy and Administration.
The 2014 SOG conference will take place in Jerusalem, on January 5-7 2014.
• Prof. Dan Carpenter, Harvard University.
• Prof. Donald Moynihan, University of Wisconsin-Madison
The School of Public Policy
The SOG Conference is hosted by the The School of Public Policy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HUJI). The School of Puplic Policy seeks to develop the new generation of professional civil servant that will provide the state of Israel – and the Israeli society – with stability and growth. The viability of Israeli society, its economic future and democratic character are inextricably tied to the calibre of professionals at the helm of its civil service. Well-grounded and highly cultivated professionals in the public sector will help to ensure Israel’s strong democratic foundation, its military and strategic prowess and its economic ingenuity. The School of Public Policy seeks to attract the best and the brightest to its unique small program in order to educate the future leadership of Israel.
Thank you, we had a great time.
We hope to see you again.
