ICPA-Forum Annual Workshops

Hosted at various international institutions around the world, the annual JCPA and ICPA­-Forum annual workshops are a key tool among the ICPA­ Forum activities, in engaging scholars and students in discussions, dialogues and exchanges to disseminate comparative policy analytic knowledge. The workshops serve as a springboard for developing a community of scholars and practitioners advancing comparative policy studies.
