The Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA), the National Planning Commission (NPC), and the University of KwaZulu-Natal School of Development Studies (NDP) are jointly organising a three-day conference to assess state capability and performance in the first ten years of the National Development Plan in November 2022.

Chapter 13 of the NDP highlights the country’s developmental state aspirations as being driven by the desire to overcome historical and socio-economic injustices and to minimise the ongoing triple difficulties of unemployment, poverty and inequality (National Planning Commission 2012). (National Planning Commission 2012).

The organisers invite academics, policymakers, doctoral students, and interested researchers to submit abstracts on the conference’s theme, “Reflections on State Capacity and Government Performance through the First Ten Years of the National Development Plan,” focusing on the following. This will allow the conference to review, reflect thoroughly, and account for the first ten years of the NDP’s quest to build and sustain a capable, ethical, and developmental state.

  • State capacity;
  • The impact of covid-19 on government performance;
  • Governance: lessons from State Capture Commission, accountability and state-owned enterprises;
  • Ethics and integrity;
  • Subnational government;
  • Industrialisation and infrastructure development.

The interested eligible researchers must submit the abstracts consisting of the title, author’s names, affiliations, contact details, a short abstract and keywords by 10 September 2022. A double peer review process will be applicable. The successful applicants or eligible abstracts will receive notification by 15 September 2022 for full papers submission by 01 November 2022.
