Geert Bouckaert IIAS President - Geert Bouckaert

Since 1930, IIAS has contributed to improving public administration and governance globally. We also did so in 2018, and we will continue to do so in 2019. We are organizing conferences and research meetings where new ideas can be shared, problems and solutions are exchanged, and existing and new practices are communicated. This implies that theory meets practice, that academia meets policy makers and advisors. We are reaching out across borderlines to connect people and institutions.


IIAS had a great year 2018; one of its best for a very long time. Under the leadership of IIAS governance Boards and standing committees, the Secretariat completed the restructuring of its events, which was started in 2017 and staged very successful IIAS, IASIA and EGPA conferences. Income from the three events more than doubled from the previous year. New business models negotiated for the organization of the events contributed to this result.
