CfA: Workshop on Incorporating Diversity into the Teaching of Public Administration at Higher Education Institutions

Center for Policy Studies - LGI

Incorporating Diversity into the Teaching of Public Administration at Higher Education Institutions

November 8-12, 2010

(deadline for applications: 10th September, 2010)

The accommodation of ethno-cultural diversity and other forms of difference is central to good, stable democratic governance. Yet, few courses equip future decision-makers with the awareness, knowledge, and skills needed for a diversity-friendly public sector.

This CRC session provides university-level teachers of public administration and related fields (e.g political science, human rights, sociology, social work) with a better understanding of the connections among ethno-cultural diversity, public administration education, and good, democratic governance. The workshop includes conceptual and practical sessions, during which participants explore key concepts, challenges, and existing practices related to the teaching of diversity issues, as well as teaching methods, literature, and other resources needed in the classroom.

Participants will also clarify how public administration education or institutions can provide a model of good diversity management. Participants are encouraged to present and reflect on experiences from their own teaching environments.

This workshop is complemented by opportunities for continued learning and professional support, including on-going mentoring, support for visiting guest lecturers, and participation in short courses, as well as resources provided by the Council of Europe, Minority Rights Group-International , the European Academy (EURAC) in Bolzano/Bozen, Italy, CPS, LGI/OSI, and other institutions.

Note: applicants are required to submit a one-page description of their approach to the public management of diversity in relation to their course design. Applicants may refer to specific authors, works, theories, or broad approaches with which they are familiar. This short description should be attached to the application package when submitted to the CRC.

The application form can be found in the following webpage: The whole package should be e-mailed to this: e-mail account by the deadline which is 10th of September, 2010.
