1 | Human resource management in the public sector

Texte

In France as well as abroad, human resources management and workforce management in the public sector are evolving rapidly in order to face challenges such as the digitalisation and innovation of public services and the gathering of resources. The demand for efficiency and quality in public services, the need to provide an appropriate response to citizens' needs and the transformation of the scope of action of public organisations lead the HRM function and renew the managerial practices.

In this context, the role of public managers is to anticipate and promote the development of agents' skills, to support their mobility, to enhance the diversity of career paths and to open the public service to more social diversity. This programme is designed to address HR challenges of public transformation. It offers to clarify the purpose and operational functions of the main HRM tools and levers in the public sector.

2 | Urban management and development

Texte

Urban management is essential in a world where more than half the population lives in cities. The acceleration of globalisation, the increase in competition for international investment and international events such as major projects (the Olympic Games for instance), or institutional headquarters point out a need to improve urban management.

Similarly, urban development and increasing social inequalities demonstrate the strategic and international importance of urban policies for cities and metropolitan regions. Indeed, as one third of the urban population lives in shanty towns, a lot remains to be done in this area. Today, global challenges are also urban challenges; cities must provide quality services. They must innovate to handle urban expansion and economic growth while meeting people's expectations and protecting both human dignity and the environment.

3 | Negotiating within and with the European union: European economic diplomacy

Texte

The European Union is the product of negotiations. Its multi-layer and multi-player policy-making labyrinth is also a constant negotiation process taking place at different levels and involving a variety of actors. The specific nature of the European Union's governance structure puts forward how important it is to agree on a common interest even when faced with opposing ones. The European integration is therefore a never-ending process of reconciling undeniable diversity with common aspirations.

Moreover, the EU is not only a major site of negotiations, but also a major participant in multilateral negotiations. Many aspects of the Union’s external relations are managed through negotiations and the European Union is considered a major negotiator in different international contexts (United Nations, World Trade Organization, trade agreements, enlargement negotiations). The aim of this seminar is to allow participants to grasp the complexity and the distinctiveness of negotiation processes taking place within and with the European Union.

5 | Fighting corruption

Texte

The Global Declaration against Corruption (May 2016) recognises the continuing importance of this challenge on the global public agenda. It also recognises the impact of globalisation on the very mechanisms of corruption. Since the 1990s, globalisation has opened hitherto unknown areas for new circuits of corruption, whereas good governance and regulation of the economy remain key conditions for development in a globalised context. In developing economies, globalisation has amplified inequalities generated by corruption, in developed countries, it has benefitted from the distortion of governance, leading to a leverage effect on sources of pressure on public decision-making. Exceeding the traditional markers of economic corruption, current perspectives on corruption lead to question transparency and probity, to improve information and knowledge of bureaucracy, organisation and independence of institutions as well as pressure groups. This course explores the main contemporary issues linked to corruption and presents them from a public policy perspective in an international context.
