CfP: 'Youth as Political Stakeholders in States and the EU'

The 2007 epsNet Plenary Conference will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia on the 22nd and 23rd of June 2007. As part of this major annual political science event a panel on the theme Youth as Political Stakeholders in States and the EU will convene. The theme of the panel is described as follows:

Presidential advisor and esteemed educator Mary McLeod Bethune once wrote of the great and powerful potential of her nation’s youth to direct national power to good ends. Some half century after her death, the powerful potential is recognised by political leaders nationally and internationally, yet some would claim that it remains a potential untapped. Despite being the demographic group that would seem, on latest trends, to be likely to live until the final years of the twenty-first century, young people often remain excluded from the political process either by design, convention or through a self-chosen lack of engagement with “things that don’t concern me yet”. While many politicians would claim a role exists in the political process for youth and youth issues, many would also argue that young people are not interested in that process and that ‘youth issues’ can remain conveniently and correctly shelved within a wider social welfare policy package.

This panel is convened to examine youth as political stakeholders in the context of a twenty-first century world. The panel director welcomes papers on any of the following topics:

· case studies of youth involvement in national/international politics;
· voting age/age of candidacy and the representation of youth;
· national/international youth organisations – challenges, successes and future;
· transnational youth issues, cooperation and context;
· youth issues in a national context – separate or part of wider social policy;
· political lobbying by youth groups – successes, failures, challenges;
· the impact of technology on the political activism of youth;
· local, national and international youth issues;
· the role of youth in setting long-term national policy;
· future tax burdens for youth in low birth-rate states – issues and solutions;
· any other topic related to the theme of the panel.

Submissions are welcome from all epsNet members and particularly from students, doctoral candidates and early career academics.

In order to be considered for this panel you must submit a paper proposal of no more than 300 words along with your contact details (name, email address, telephone number, university affiliation) and the number of the panel: C5. Proposals should be emailed to papers07@epsnet.org no later than 10 March 2007.

More information about the conference can be found at the epsNet Plenary Conference webpage: http://www.epsnet.org/2007/Call.htm

Open to: applicants who have demonstrated their interest in public sector management in the past


Announcement follows:

The 2007 Summer School of Public Management (SSPUM) will focus on the management of public sector organizations.SSPUM's principal goal is to help improve the management of public sector organizations, especially municipal governments.

Aim of the course
SSPUM is an intensive, 12-day program that requires participants' total dedication and intellectual commitment. The program's learning process, based principally on the case method of instruction, assists participants to develop both knowledge and skills in the context of a variety of conceptual framework. They then use those frameworks in formulating research projects appropriate to their professional interests, or, in the case of public sector managers, in analyzing problems and developing solutions in their back-home situations


Main topics

The Public Sector Environment
Management Accounting
Operations Management
Management Control Systems
Information Technology and E-government
Financial Accounting, Auditing and Accountability
Research Issues in the Public Sector
Faculty


In addition, three faculty from the Forlì Campus will make short presentations of their recent research in the public sector on topics related to the program.s content: Carlotta del Sordo, Ph.D. (management control in universities), Federica Farneti, Ph.D. (the balanced scorecard in nonprofit organizations), and Simona Zambelli, Ph.D (public sector-private sector partnership)


Target group
We seek applicants who have demonstrated their interest in public sector management in the past, and who are committed to continuing to work in this area in the future.

SSPUM is designed primarily for doctoral students at the dissertation stage and junior faculty who wish to learn new skills that will assist them in conducting research projects in the public sector. Although SSPUM's main focus is on academicians, prior editions have included several practicing managers. These managers have found that SSPUM provided them with some useful conceptual frameworks for their work, and also that their real world experiences helped to enrich the classroom discussions for everyone.

The program is conducted entirely in English, and requires a strong command of the language. Many classes involve discussions, with the topics shifting several times during the class. As a result, participants will need to be able to understand what is being said and make comments relatively crisply and fluidly.


Admission and fee
SSPUM’s tuition of 1,950€ covers all program-related activities, course materials, administrative support, lunches, welcome refreshments, a mid-program reception, and a dinner at the end of the first week.
Accommodations and the remaining meals are not covered.

Participants will be selected on the basis of the information in their completed application form enclosed on the right, their curriculum vitae, and a letter of presentation.

All application materials are due by 5 March 2007.
Applicants may send their materials to the SSPUM Program Office by either E-mail: sspum@poloforli.unibo.it
or fax (+39-0543-37-4681).

By 16 March 2007, selected individuals will be notified by E-mail of their acceptance. At that time, they will be informed of the scholarship support available to them.

They will have until 2 April to pay a non-refundable registration fee (deducted from tuition) of 195EUR to reserve their place. The remainder of their tuition (1,755EUR less scholarship support) will be due by 30 April.

Failure to meet this deadline may result in a loss of the participant's slot in the program and a forfeiture of his or her registration fee.

Key dates:
5 March, 2007: Application deadline
16 March, 2007: Communication of acceptance e sent
2 April, 2007: Registration fee (195 €) due
30 April, 2007: Remainder of tuition due (1,755 € less scholarship support)


Scholarships opportunities
The scholarships will cover between 20 and 90 percent of tuition. They will be distributed on the basis of an applicant's interest in public management, coupled with his or her financial need. Need-based funding also is available for travel and accommodations.


Credits and evaluation
A Certificate of Completion and four continuing education credits (ECTS) will be awarded to those individuals who successfully complete the program. Except for highly unsual circumstances, individuals who miss more than two sessions will be withdrawn from the program immediately with no opportunity for a refund of their tuition.


Accommodation and meals
Participants are invited to stay in one of four hotels near the main campus (shown on SSPUM web site)

A bank of rooms has been made available in each hotel for participants in SSPUM at the rates shown above. The hotels have committed to holding these rooms available until 14 May 2007. After that date, the special rates will not be available.
Participants who wish to share a room should inform the SSPUM staff of this fact when they mail in their deposit. The staff will prepare a list of the names, ages, genders, nationalities, and E-mail addresses of individuals seeking a roommate.
Participants may use this information to communicate with each other and to select a roommate.

Each participant is responsible for making his or her own hotel reservations, selecting a roommate, if he or she wishes one, and paying for his or her share of the hotel bill. All hotels are close to some good and inexpensive restaurants for dinners.

Lunch is provided by the program each day except Sunday of the first week. There also will be two program-sponsored events during the first week: a reception on Wednesday evening, and a dinner on Friday. On other evenings, participants often ask one or more faculty members to join them at dinner to discuss topics of mutual interest, or to further explore some of the ideas being presented in the classroom.


Social programme
On Friday evening of the first week, participants will travel to Rimini, a small town on the Adriatic coast that is very popular with tourists, and near the famous Rubicon crossed by Julius Caesar. In Rimini, they may either visit a local museum or sightsee prior to attending a program-sponsored dinner. Participants also will have an opportunity for sightseeing during their free time from 3:30pm on Saturday of the first week until early Sunday evening, when they need to begin to prepare for Monday’s classes. Otherwise, individuals who wish to sightsee or tour in Italy, or to engage in other non-program activities, should plan to do so before or after the program, but not during it.

New Book: Mythistory and Narratives of the Nation in the Balkans

I am pleased to announce the publication of an edited volume on the Balkans that may be of interest to list members.

More info can be found on the following webpage:

http://www.c- s-p.org/Flyers/ Mythistory- and-Narratives- of-the-Nation- in-the-Balkans. htm

Below you can find a brief description of the collection, followed by the list of articles featured in the collection.

Tatjana Aleksic
Rutgers University

The idea of this collection is to bring to the forefront various ways in
which the literary poetics of Balkan nations interrelates with their
national poetics, and present recent and innovative explorations of
literature and film which actively engage with national poetics, a kind of
mythopoiesis of the modern Balkans.

In proposing an approach to the national question that lies distinctly in
the liminal space best designated as mythistory, the collection brings
together two dominant approaches to national discourse. The first tends to
interpret the nation as a myth, an artificial creation, an invention, even
a "dream." The other is a mapping of the nation that considers its
historically progressive role. It is their multifaceted dynamics that
brings to the foreground a unique national mythopoetics.

Mythistory is explored through its multifold engagement with the text: as
a major element in the universal nationalist discourse, as a narrative
strategy extensively utilized in Balkan literary and film narratives, and
as a particular technique in approaching the text. Through the insights
gained from literary and critical theory, historical analysis, and
cultural anthropology, this collection seeks to reveal the application of
mythistorical discourse upon narratives responding to nation-forming
historical events. The texts in this collection articulate very distinct
agendas of gender, identity, culture, philosophy, and aesthetics, all
interwoven with national problematic, but steer away from the definition
by which mythistory is relegated to the transparently propagandist.

XIII Cervia International Summer School "Beyond the Enlargement. The Wider Europe and the new Neighbourhood, Cervia (RA), 3rd - 14th September 2007

The goal of the School deals with the post-Cold War challenges, designed in particular to help the South-East Europe and CIS students to learn about democratic development, human rights, peace and security issues and to look into emerging patterns of economic growth, as well as on integration factors and the new policies of EU neighbourhood. The problems of the Enlarged Europe will be analysed in depth through the active participation of an International Faculty.

General information
Thanks to its scientific and methodological approach, tested during the past twelfth editions, the School contributes in creating strong roots for high standards of self-understanding and tolerance, looked upon as basic values for the advancing of the civil societies, for the consolidation of political institutions in South-Eastern Europe, Caucasus and CIS, and the overcoming of conflicts in these Regions. Indeed, these are the basic prerequisites for the integration of this Area inside the EU in the next future, or for the establishment of a good neighbourhood.

At the same time, the young generations coming form these areas are expected to become members of the new leadership, supporters of democratic principles, human rights values and free market economies. These generations could also become able to create, in their own countries, positive expectations from economic and democratic integration in Europe or from a strong cooperation with the EU, reversing the current trends, particularly in South East and CIS Europe, where strong national confrontations and ethnic contrasts are often considered as values.

Both the high quality of the Faculty and the trans-European character of the School students provide an ideal environment for the development of interpersonal and intercultural relationships between East and West Europeans and for the shared learning about political questions of common concern. The School is, in this sense, a good opportunity to foster a cultural rehabilitation of young generations coming from countries involved in nationalistic tensions and, sometimes, in war activities.

The 2007 Summer School of Public Management (SSPUM) will focus on the management of public sector organizations.SSPUM's principal goal is to help improve the management of public sector organizations, especially municipal governments.

Aim of the course
SSPUM is an intensive, 12-day program that requires participants' total dedication and intellectual commitment. The program's learning process, based principally on the case method of instruction, assists participants to develop both knowledge and skills in the context of a variety of conceptual framework. They then use those frameworks in formulating research projects appropriate to their professional interests, or, in the case of public sector managers, in analyzing problems and developing solutions in their back-home situations


Main topics

The Public Sector Environment
Management Accounting
Operations Management
Management Control Systems
Information Technology and E-government
Financial Accounting, Auditing and Accountability
Research Issues in the Public Sector
Faculty

Cesar De Souza, Ph.D., Professor, University of São Paulo, Brazil, and Invited Researcher, Methodist University of São Paulo, Brazil (Information Technology and E-government)
James Guthrie, James Guthrie is a Professor of Accounting at the University of Sydney. He has been a visiting lecturer at the Bath University School of Management, the Stockholm University School of Business, and, in Italy, the universities of Siena, Ferrara, Bologna, and Bocconi SDA (Financial Accounting; Auditing and Accountability; Public Sector Environment; Research Issues in the Public Sector);
Janelle Heineke, D.B.A., Professor of Operations Management, Health Sector and Public and Nonprofit Management Programs, Boston University School of Management; Boston, Massachusetts; U.S.A. (Operations Management);
Emanuele Padovani, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Management Control Systems in Public Sector Organizations, Alma Mater Studiorum, University of Bologna, Forlì Campus (Public Sector Environment; Research Issues in the Public Sector);
David W. Young, D.B.A., Professor of Management, Emeritus, Health Sector and Public and Nonprofit Management Programs, Boston University School of Management, Boston, Massachusetts, U.SA. (Management Control Systems; Public Sector Environment; Research Issues in the Public Sector)


In addition, three faculty from the Forlì Campus will make short presentations of their recent research in the public sector on topics related to the program.s content: Carlotta del Sordo, Ph.D. (management control in universities), Federica Farneti, Ph.D. (the balanced scorecard in nonprofit organizations), and Simona Zambelli, Ph.D (public sector-private sector partnership)


Targer group
We seek applicants who have demonstrated their interest in public sector management in the past, and who are committed to continuing to work in this area in the future.

SSPUM is designed primarily for doctoral students at the dissertation stage and junior faculty who wish to learn new skills that will assist them in conducting research projects in the public sector. Although SSPUM's main focus is on academicians, prior editions have included several practicing managers. These managers have found that SSPUM provided them with some useful conceptual frameworks for their work, and also that their real world experiences helped to enrich the classroom discussions for everyone.


Language
The program is conducted entirely in English, and requires a strong command of the language. Many classes involve discussions, with the topics shifting several times during the class. As a result, participants will need to be able to understand what is being said and make comments relatively crisply and fluidly.


Admission and fee
SSPUM’s tuition of 1,950€ covers all program-related activities, course materials, administrative support, lunches, welcome refreshments, a mid-program reception, and a dinner at the end of the first week.
Accommodations and the remaining meals are not covered.

Participants will be selected on the basis of the information in their completed application form enclosed on the right, their curriculum vitae, and a letter of presentation.

All application materials are due by 5 March 2007.
Applicants may send their materials to the SSPUM Program Office by either E-mail: sspum@poloforli.unibo.it
or fax (+39-0543-37-4681).

By 16 March 2007, selected individuals will be notified by E-mail of their acceptance. At that time, they will be informed of the scholarship support available to them.

They will have until 2 April to pay a non-refundable registration fee (deducted from tuition) of 195EUR to reserve their place. The remainder of their tuition (1,755EUR less scholarship support) will be due by 30 April.

Failure to meet this deadline may result in a loss of the participant's slot in the program and a forfeiture of his or her registration fee.

Key dates:
5 March, 2007: Application deadline
16 March, 2007: Communication of acceptance e sent
2 April, 2007: Registration fee (195 €) due
30 April, 2007: Remainder of tuition due (1,755 € less scholarship support)


Scholarships opportunities
The scholarships will cover between 20 and 90 percent of tuition. They will be distributed on the basis of an applicant's interest in public management, coupled with his or her financial need. Need-based funding also is available for travel and accommodations.


Credits and evaluation
A Certificate of Completion and four continuing education credits (ECTS) will be awarded to those individuals who successfully complete the program. Except for highly unsual circumstances, individuals who miss more than two sessions will be withdrawn from the program immediately with no opportunity for a refund of their tuition.


Accommodation and meals
Participants are invited to stay in one of four hotels near the main campus (shown on SSPUM web site)

A bank of rooms has been made available in each hotel for participants in SSPUM at the rates shown above. The hotels have committed to holding these rooms available until 14 May 2007. After that date, the special rates will not be available.
Participants who wish to share a room should inform the SSPUM staff of this fact when they mail in their deposit. The staff will prepare a list of the names, ages, genders, nationalities, and E-mail addresses of individuals seeking a roommate.
Participants may use this information to communicate with each other and to select a roommate.

Each participant is responsible for making his or her own hotel reservations, selecting a roommate, if he or she wishes one, and paying for his or her share of the hotel bill. All hotels are close to some good and inexpensive restaurants for dinners.

Lunch is provided by the program each day except Sunday of the first week. There also will be two program-sponsored events during the first week: a reception on Wednesday evening, and a dinner on Friday. On other evenings, participants often ask one or more faculty members to join them at dinner to discuss topics of mutual interest, or to further explore some of the ideas being presented in the classroom.



Social programme
On Friday evening of the first week, participants will travel to Rimini, a small town on the Adriatic coast that is very popular with tourists, and near the famous Rubicon crossed by Julius Caesar. In Rimini, they may either visit a local museum or sightsee prior to attending a program-sponsored dinner. Participants also will have an opportunity for sightseeing during their free time from 3:30pm on Saturday of the first week until early Sunday evening, when they need to begin to prepare for Monday’s classes. Otherwise, individuals who wish to sightsee or tour in Italy, or to engage in other non-program activities, should plan to do so before or after the program, but not during it.
