The field of public policy involves a number of different ways of thinking, theories, and methodological approaches from many different epistemological and ontological perspectives in an increasingly globalized field. This diversity can challenge new students and experienced scholars alike.


The International Spring School on Public Policy Denver will bring together five leading public policy scholars to address this challenge and offer participating PhD students or young scholars the opportunity to attend the following activities:


  • Five 3-hour lecture sessions on various approaches and techniques for studying public policy that reflect the diversity of approaches found in the field;
  • Three 3-hour small group student research panel sessions on participating student research efforts (including but not limited to dissertation proposals, draft dissertation chapters, and manuscripts being prepared for journal submission) that will feature presentations and discussions by students with a scholar and fellow students serving as discussants; and
  • One 2-hour roundtable discussion sessions featuring the international scholars on the status and future of the international study of public policy


The International School Spring School on Public Policy - Denver Edition 2020 will also offer many opportunities to connect with peer students and international scholars in building their professional networks. This event is supported by the International Public Policy Association (IPPA) and the School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado Denver.
