The International Institute of Administrative Sciences strives to create and diffuse policy relevant scientific research in the field of public administration. It chose the theme of Public Governance for Climate Action in the context of Schoolstrikes for Climate and European Green Deal. In the meantime, the outbreak of the Coronavirus-pandemic has emerged as another pressing policy priority. It involves lots of challenges for public administration. Accordingly, the IIAS has added a Coronatrack to its conference program. Case studies of national approaches to the governance of the pandemic are especially welcome. IIAS member country’s representatives will moreover compose the closing panel of the Conference, on June 26th.
