Off to Leuven....

In September 2002 I made my first "working" trip to Europe on a Fulbright Senior Specialist program assignment arranged with universities in Leiden and Leuven, and a pleasant two weeks it was. Leuven was an especially nice surprise, especially the great beer and the nice views in the "town square." One of the results of that trip was a plan hatched over dinner with colleagues from the Public Management Institute of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven for a joint "transatlantic" (actually ASPA-EGPA) ethics conference for 2005 to be held at Leuven -- and the time has finally arrived. Tomorrow I head out to join my colleagues for three days of workshops, plenaries and beer all around in that wonderful Belgium city.

The call for papers drew a great response, and there will be 100 participants working in five distinct groups. I will be chairing a workshop on theories and concepts with Richard Chapman from Durham, and friend Ciarán and I will also have a paper to offer the group on Saturday.

All this is to say that there will be less blogging than usual on this site -- but then again the trip is likely to generate more material than I have had to work with lately....
