Public Organisation

seminar pictureA major 2-day conference

Wednesday 11th & Thursday 12th June 2008, Bristol

To be held at the Bristol Marriott Royal hotel, College Green, Bristol, BS1 5TA

This conference is on Public Organisation, relating in a general sense to the supply of public services, and obviously echoing Industrial Organisation. In the conference, we aim to gather the world’s leading scholars researching such issues and consolidate the idea of Public Organisation as a field. Part of the aim of the meeting is to connect research and researchers that might not otherwise seem related. As the ESRC Centre for Market and Public Organisation, this is a key part of our agenda.

Admission is free and lunch will be provided for all participants.

Conference Organiser: Simon Burgess
