2019 Toronto Policy & Governance Workshop

We are pleased to announce the papers for the 3rd annual Toronto Public Policy and Governance Workshop at the University of Toronto.  This year’s theme is Policy-making & Governance in the Age of Disruption.

The goal of the workshop is to offer a unique space to disseminate and discuss rigorous and cutting edge public policy and governance research. The workshop will follow the ECPR (European Consortium for Political Research) joint-sessions format and be limited to a small number of paper givers, with one hour dedicated to each paper. Papers will be circulated in advance and attendees should come ready to discuss, debate, and help strengthen the work of their colleagues.  Co-organized with Amanda Clarke, this year’s papers are:

  • Amanda Clarke (Ottawa) and Jonathan Craft (Toronto). Digital Policy Skills in the Westminster Cluster.
  • Christopher Cooper (Ottawa). The Online Political Activity of Public Sector Employees: The View from Australia.
  • Jonathan Craft (Toronto) & Amanda Clake (Carleton). Die Hard With (Policy) A Vengeance? Implementation Effects in Digital Era Policy Design.
  • Michael Donnelly and Blake Lee-Whiting (Toronto). Digital performance and differing expectations.
  • Marcel Goguen, Angela Licata, and Tony Porter (McMaster University). Big data and the changing face(s) of government-citizen relations: The cases of taxation and social activism.
  • Evert Lindquist (University of Victoria). The Competing Values of Public Management Reform in the Digital Era.
