Proceedings of the International Conference on Public Organization (ICONPO 2021)

The International Conference on Public Organization (ICONPO) was first established in Yogyakarta, Indonesia on January 30, 2011 by the APSPA Organization. The organization brought together some experts from public organization delegates such as Korea University, Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta, Thammasat University of Thailand, Khon Kaen University of Thailand, Universitas Utara Malaysia, Mindanao State University-Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT) of the Philippines, etc. to carry out conferences, seminars, and workshops. The executive members of the Asia-Pacific Society for Public Affairs held a meeting virtually to discuss the ICONPO 2021, and the result is that the conference will be held virtually since the situation of COVID-19 is still unprecedented in many countries. The theme of ICONPO 2021 is entitled "Digital Governance and Crisis Management in COVID-19: A Call for Action." The executive board of APSPA welcomes you to join ICONPO 2021. ICONPO 2021 also conducts a Board Insight of Future Public Administration. We are inviting all professionals, scholars, and any practitioner to join and participate in our event. The submitted abstract will be reviewed to ensure its scientific quality. Since the main administration and secretary office of APSPA are in Yogyakarta, the committee will be remotely working under the secretary office of APSPA in Yogyakarta.

The 11th International Conference on Public Organization (ICONPO XI 2021) was held at the Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta, Indonesia from August 13–14, 2021 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Unfortunately, with the unprecedented situation during the global pandemic, the event was held as a virtual conference.
