Symposium on Behavioral Approaches to Bureaucratic Red Tape and Administrative Burden

GW Conference on Behavioral Approaches at the Trachtenberg School on May 23 and 24, 2018

Welcome to the conference homepage for the Public Administration Review (PAR) symposium on behavioral public administration! The focus of the forthcoming symposium will be on behavioral public administration particularly as it contributes to a deeper understanding of the creation and consequences of bureaucratic red tape, administrative burden, and government regulations.
A reception in the evening of May 23 and day-long conference on May 24, both hosted by George Washington University, will bring together the prospective authors and editors as well as practitioners intimately familiar with behavioral issues as they connect to public administration. Event sponsors include the Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration, Rutgers University Center for Experimental and Behavioral Public Administration, and GW Regulatory Studies Center.
