The Education University of Hong Kong and the University of Saskatchewan invite applications for the inaugural Canada-Hong Kong Public Affairs and Management International Summer School cum Policy Analysis Competition 2021.
About the Summer School
The virtual summer school is a unique week-long workshop and competition that serves as an introductory primer to different facets of public affairs and public management in different sectors around the world. Five days of faculty-led workshops will be followed by a two-day long policy-analysis competition. Through seminars featuring academicians and public management practitioners, case studies, activity sessions students gain insight and develop skills to understand real-world public affairs and public management issues. Based upon this learning students will work in groups to compete in the policy analysis competition, where they have 48-hours to present their solutions to a novel case-study situation. Certificates will be awarded to the top three teams and to all students for their participation.
Topics Covered: Health Policy, Refugee Issues, Policy Analysis, Data Use in Public Policy, Climate Policy, SMART cities and Urban Governance, Human Resources Management
How will Participants Benefit: The programme will give participants a broader perspective on public affairs and public management by introducing key concepts and through relevant discussions on contemporary topics and recent academic work. It will expose participants to the real-world experiences of public administrators and managers in Hong Kong and Canada. It will expand on critical thinking and analytical skills by engaging students in a competitive policy analysis exercise.
