Here’s an important announcement from NCDD member Steve Pyser, who is the Editor of IAP2’s online journal, the International Journal of Public Participation (IJP2).
Call for Papers – International Journal of Public Participation (IJP2) – Special Symposium Issue (January 2010)
The International Journal of Public Participation (IJP2) brings together academicians and practitioners interested in a multidisciplinary forum for the exchange of information among researchers, practitioners, decision-makers, and citizens about public participation and its impact around the world. It has been created with the specific intention of bridging the arenas of research and practice within the field of public participation.
Beginning with the presidential campaign, moving to the transition period, and once in office, the Obama team has sought to alter the relationship between American citizens and their government. IJP2 is interested in learning and sharing the perspectives of all stakeholders about the Obama Administration’s public engagement efforts and invites both scholars and practitioners to respond to our inquiry.
IJP2 will publish in its January 2010 issue a set of essays of 3000 to 5000 words, from both scholar and practitioner perspectives. We seek manuscripts reflecting all voices and diverse political viewpoints from our worldwide readership. Submitted essays can address one of the following questions, or authors may choose a different question or set of questions to address. Case studies, experiences, and conclusions based on data are welcome. (more…)
