Graduate Workshop

The PPRN Graduate Workshop brings graduate students together to share research and receive feedback from senior scholars.

This year the PPRN Graduate Workshop will be held at King’s College London on 11 February 2022.

If you are a PhD student working in Public Policy, Public Management, Political Economy, or Behavioural Public Policy don’t miss the third edition of the PPRN Graduate Workshop. The workshop will give doctoral students the chance to present their ongoing research in a constructive environment. It will be a unique opportunity to improve your research, to meet other researchers studying similar topics, and to expand your professional network.

The Graduate Workshop will cover the following research areas:

  • Public Policy
  • Political Economy
  • Public Administration

We are particularly interested in behavioural approaches within these areas, although all methods and theoretical groundings are invited. We welcome papers that present a developed theory or research design, in addition to those that present empirical findings.

Presenters will be assigned a discussant from a cohort of senior scholars based at KCL, LSE, and UCL. Each presenter will have 20 minutes to present their research and 20 minutes for discussion. Discussants will read the paper in advance and will provide comments. The best paper presented at the workshop will be awarded a prize by the PPRN.

The workshop will be organised in a hybrid format so presenters who are unable to travel to London can join online. For those who are able to attend in person, lunch and other refreshments will be provided and the event will be followed a networking reception.
