The Utrecht School of Governance (USG) within the Utrecht University is hosting the PMRC 2023 conference on 27-30 June 2023.
The Public Management Research Conference (PMRC) is the foremost gathering of public management experts in the world. For this 2023 event, the conference organisers have prepared an exciting programme, with large number of workshops and panels sessions spread over 4 days, and expect to welcome about 300 participants!
TiGRE is nicely represented at this conference. In particular, Heidi Houlberg Salomonsen (Aarhus University) and Marija Aleksovska (Utrecht University) chair a TiGRE-related panel entitled "Managing and Organizing for Enhancing and Rebuilding Trust in Government Agencies". In times where typically "high trust" countries experience declining trust in government organisations, this panel sheds light on new approaches to investigating whether and how government agencies’ degree of independence and behaviours affect citizens and other important stakeholders' trust.
In addition, Marija Aleksovska, Heidi Houlberg Salomonsen and Thomas Schillemans (Utrecht University) will present their conference paper: "Silence speaks volumes: How does regulatory communication affect citizens’ trust?".
