Postgraduate seminar series

The Exeter Politics Postgraduate Research Seminar Series provides a forum for presentation and discussion of work in progress of early career academics in the department. The seminar is run by and for postgraduate students, and is a great opportunity to receive feedback and get to know the Politics postgraduate community better. There is no set theme for the seminar, and it includes work at all stages in its development; from research proposals, to thesis chapters, draft articles and conference papers. The usual format is that we circulate the paper via email a week beforehand, with the seminar itself starting with a brief presentation by the author/authors followed by a discussion lasting 30-40mins. Academic staff are more than welcome to join the sessions and are expected to encourage their students to present their work.
 
During the academic year of 2017/2018 the seminar series will be held twice a month on Friday 4:30pm-5:30pm. 
 
If you want to present or receive information about upcoming seminar sessions, please contact the members of the organising committee:

Public Policy Seminar Series: Alice Moseley, Lecturer in Politics. New Frontiers in Public Administration: The Behavioural Perspective

This paper reviews the state of the art in the application of behavioural insights to public administration. The paper asks what a behavioural perspective on public administration is, what, if anything, is 'new' about the approach, and where it is heading. Importantly, the paper considers what a behavioual perspective misses and whether/ how it can be integrated with other theoretical frameworks to help address important questions in public administration.
