About the Event

They will be hosting pre-conference workshops on 25th March 2021. The conference will bring together academics, researchers, and practitioners from national and international universities, research institutions, civil society organizations, public agencies and the private sector. The conference is an excellent platform to present research, engage with topical issues and collaborate with like-minded individuals to address critical issues in public policy.

Public policy is critical for shaping technology as a force that raises awareness, assuages fears, builds trust, and opens development pathways for communities. The IPPN annual conference this year aims to draw upon the multidisciplinary nature of this topic to explore critical issues at the intersection of technology and public policy. The conference welcomes research from all disciplines that incorporates this approach.
