About the Conference

The Public Management Research Conference (PMRC) is the foremost gathering of public management experts in the world. The PMRC is sponsored by the Public Management Research Association (PMRA), which also publishes the Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory (JPART), one of the premier journals in the field, as well as Perspectives on Public Management and Governance (PPMG), which debuted in 2017.

On behalf of our Hawaii “Ohana” (Family-Host Committee), we look forward to hosting 2020 PMRC Hawaii. Our goal is to host a conference that is truly international, in which both East and West come together to collaborate on. Hawaii is ideal for such a conference since it is the only state in the US where you can collaborate with scholars from New York and Shanghai in the same day. The Islands are connected culturally with immigrants from Japan, China, Korea, Australia, New Zealand, the Filipinas, Portugal, Spain, and many more. 

Given the beauty of the islands and easy connections from around the world, we feel confident that the 2020 PMRC Hawaii will be well attended and academically stimulating.
