Call for Papers 10th Workshop of the Study Group of the European Group of Public Administration (EGPA) on Ethics and Integrity of Governance
The Study Group on Ethics and Integrity of Governance brings together academics and practitioners interested in the ethical dimension of administration and organization. The group's mission is to establish a long-term network aimed at stimulating research on public sector integrity and ethics in Europe. The aim of the annual sessions is to present an overview of the cutting-edge academic research on ethics and integrity of governance with relevance for the practice of European governance and government. The Study Group particularly wants to contribute to making progress in comparative research, building on previous initiatives in transnational and global dialogues and the increasing cooperation between European researchers. Possible themes could include (but are not limited to) the following: - What is the quality of governance and how can it be improved? - Integrity policies: What works, how and when? - What is the state of public integrity in Scandinavia; what are the good and bad developments? - Criminological perspectives on corruption and employee deviance - Historical and sociological analyses of ethics in governance in countries or European regions - Concepts of administrative ethics research - Methodologies of administrative ethics research - Developments of public integrity (and corruption) within administrations (and predictions) - (Conflicting) public values - Normative analyses of public governance - Victims of ethics violations: theoretical and empirical research on consequences of ethics violations on management of organizations, legitimacy, citizens, state budgets, trust etc.

Call for Papers 11th Annual International Young Researchers Conference - Post-Communist Corruption: Causes, Manifestations, Consequences
After more than two decades of research on post-communist transformations, a consensus has emerged that corruption is a major phenomenon associated with the evolution of the former “second world.” The purpose of this conference is to explore the analytical, conceptual and comparative dimensions of this phenomenon and to examine recent empirical findings and field work on corruption in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. We are particularly interested in questions such as: What is the heuristic potential, as well as the possible shortcomings, of currently available typologies of post-communist corruption? Is there anything historically distinct about post-communist corruption – or is it a manifestation of broader patterns observable across regions and types of political regimes? What are the most promising strategies for studying the interplay of local factors (such as the multifaceted legacies of socialism) and international developments (such as the emergence of globalized political, economic and institutional contexts) that shape corrupt practices in post-communism? How have such practices evolved over the last twenty years, and how do they vary across time and space? What important aspects of post-communist socio-political orders can be explained as a consequence of enduring and institutionally embedded forms of corrupt behavior? We invite submissions that demonstrate both analytical rigor and sensitivity to cultural and historical differences. We are particularly interested in stimulating cross-disciplinary conversations about the nature and significance of corruption and the ways in which empirically grounded studies of this phenomenon may be amalgamated into broader analytical accounts of political, social, economic and cultural change after the fall of communism. We encourage proposals from young researchers who have already completed their dissertation research (ABD) or have defended their dissertation within the last three years. This will be an intensive 2-1/2 day working conference (March 29-April 1, 2012) during which each of the selected papers will be critiqued by the other participants, including all invited presenters, keynote speakers, and a team of discussants made up of Miami University faculty. Questions can be directed to:
