ConferenceCall for Abstracts : Deadline 28 July, 2014

WIPCAD Midterm Conference (4 - 6 December 2014) “Contested Public Organizations : Knowledge, Coordination, Strategy”

DFG-funded Research Training Group “WIPCAD – Wicked Problems, Contested Administrations : Knowledge, Coordination, Strategy” 
University of Potsdam, Germany

WIPCAD Midterm Conference (4 - 6 December 2014) “Contested Public Organizations : Knowledge, Coordination, Strategy” Organizations commonly operate under conditions of high complexity, uncertainty, and ambiguity. Rapidly changing environments exert pressures to which organizations have to respond in order to gain and maintain legitimacy. Public organizations are particularly exposed to such external demands because they are typically embedded in a complex nexus of stakeholders, which often have inconsistent expectations and are ultimately assessed by political criteria. Emergent tensions may not only destabilize organizational structures and routines, but call into question conventional methods of administration. Contestation occurs in at least three areas of core organizational activity : knowledge use and transfer ; internal and external coordination ; and strategy building.

The WIPCAD Midterm Conference invites researchers to submit proposals for papers that critically examine the dynamics between environments and organizational core activities. The conference theme focuses on how public organizations deal with changing conditions in terms of : (1) knowledge use and transfer ; (2) coordination ; and (3) strategy building. How do they react to and/or proactively seek to shape environmental conditions in order to gain legitimacy and maintain effectiveness ?

The Political Process of Policymaking

The Political Process of Policymaking : A Pragmatic Approach to Public Policy
by Phillipe Zittoun
Palgrave Macmillan, June 2014


Far from being defenceless when faced with inextricable problems such as inequality, unemployment, poverty, precarious situations or global warming, governments continuously increase the policy proposals for new action, reforms or transformation. Nevertheless, their inability to solve problems, which is occasionally penalised by democratic voting or by changeovers, never challenges the political system itself. To understand this astonishing political stability within a disordered world, Philippe Zittoun looks at the ’policymaking process’ as a political activity which defines, propagates and imposes public policy proposals as a means to ’restore order’ within society. Based on a significant study as well as on surveys carried out at the heart of the policymaking process, this innovative approach to public policy leads us to identify policymakers as true modern Sisyphuses.
