“In the current political and societal climate of democratic deficit, climate change, continuing discrimination of women, hostility towards refugees and migrants, rising global inequality and widespread epistemic injustice, it could not be more pressing for the field to further enhance its prominence and impact. Therefore, the virtual event will bring together interpretive policy analysts to take stock of the development of their field, celebrate its achievements, examine its challenges, and propose ways of moving forward.

The event will comprise a variety of Panels and Papers that address one of the many strands and approaches in the field:

  • advancing and illustrating a particular method or conceptualization;
  • interpretive analysis of pressing policy issues;
  • cross-fertilization between different interpretive approaches; and/or
  • evaluating key advances and ambitions of the field. [….]”
