“Collaboration has become a major solution to modern public administration issues that demand sharing of information, increased productivity, more efficient use of resources, and greater legitimacy among multiple actors from various sectors (Donahue & Zeckhauser, 2011). Countries, despite their varying contexts and conditions, have jumped on this bandwagon and embraced the idea of thinner, more adaptive, more entrepreneurial, and more collaborative government. … Within this context, Fudan University’s School of International Relations and Public Affairs (SIRPA), the Association for Public Policy Analysis and Management (APPAM), and the University of Maryland’s School of Public Policy (UMD) cosponsored an international public policy and management conference at Fudan University, China on May 26 and 27, 2013. … The conference theme was ‘Collaboration Among Government, Market, and Society: Forging Partnerships and Encouraging Competition.’” This summary provides an overview of the 25 panels, five plenary keynote speeches, and other programming from the conference, which included discussion of environmental governance, collaboration in education, privatization, collaborative service delivery, innovation through collaboration, government-business collaboration, public-private partnership, and more.
