Policy Innovation Festival – Policy Innovations in Emerging Asia |

Policy Innovation Festival – Policy Innovations in Emerging Asia

5 – 7 August 2014

Synopsis:

Showcasing emerging cities from China, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Malaysia, the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy (LKYSPP) warmly invites you to join us in our 3-day conference celebrating public sector innovations in the categories of :

  • E-Government & Participatory Innovations
  • Innovations for Sustainability and the Revitalization of Public Spaces
  • Innovations for Enhancing Efficiency and Public Services
  • Promising Pilots and Innovations in Learning

These cases have been recognized for their contributions to the public sector by international organizations such as the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), Democratic Local Governance in Southeast-Asia (Delgosea), as well as national awarding bodies such as the Galing Pook Foundation, Philippines, the Center for Chinese Government Innovation at Peking University, China, and the Innovation in Urban Management Awards by the Ministry of Home Affairs, Indonesia. By bringing together representatives from the award winning cities, and awarding agencies, we aspire to engage participants in discussions with each other and learn about the Singapore experience with urban policy innovation. Our opening plenary features Professor Gavin Shatkin (Northeastern University) and Professor Michael Douglass (LKYSPP and Asian Research Institute). The festival will also include experts from Singapore such as Dr. Liu Thai Kher, noted for his influence on Singapore’s urban landscape as the head of the Housing Development Board (HDB) and Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), as well as Mr. Poon King Wang, the Director of the Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities (LKYCIC), Singapore University of Technology and Design. We will also have an ongoing poster exhibit throughout the festival days where many of the award winning cities will be displaying their innovations.
