VIII EBAP:Public Administration and the Challenges for the Next Decade
VII EBAP: November 11th and 13th, 2020 (virtual mode)
The VII Brazilian Meeting of Public Administration (EBAP) recognizes the need to transform management in the Brazilian public sector. The traditional model that prevailed throughout the 20th century has been replaced, since redemocratization, by more transparent, participatory and citizen-oriented forms. This is not a simple reform or change of style, but a radical transformation in the role of the state in its relationship with society.
Due to the pandemic, this was the first edition of EBAP in virtual mode, between the 11th and 13th of November, 2020. Event website: http://ebap.sbap.org.br/
