Colloquium: The role of public policy schools in uncertain times from international perspectives

This colloquium will focus on the mission, role, and impact of public policy schools, as seen by presidents, deans and directors from leading international universities. Is it possible to find a balance between politics and policy? Why are applied programmes often considered second-tier compared to law or economics degrees? What has been the impact of public policy schools on policy-making, public administration and public stewardship?
