SIMAD University is organizing the 2nd Conference on Economics and Public Administration (CEPAD2017). The main theme of the conference is “Creating a better future for Somalia”.  (CEPAD2017) will serve as a platform that contributes ideas and strategies in overcoming the challenges associated with public policy and administration development faced by the nation as in whole and institutions of the government, in particular. The conference reflects developments by providing a meeting place for the discussion of public policy and administration related research, developments methods, tools and experimental results. Its main goal is to foster public policy and administration talk by bringing together researchers, scholars, and public servants.

The conference will be held annually from 26-27 of April every year. It is an academic conference with an estimated attendance of 200 participants, presenters and guests, and has traditionally intended to be accessible and affordable both to the organizers (in terms of organization complexity and financial burden) and to the participants.
