During its 12th Congress, the Ibero-American Union of Municipalists (UIM), awarded its highest honor, the Enrique B. Rodriguez Municipalist Award, to Dr. Allan Rosenbaum, the Director of the Institute for Public Management and Community Service (IPMCS) at Florida International University (FIU) in recognition of his more than 25 years of work in building and strengthening local governments and promoting good governance throughout Latin America.

Congratulations Bianor ! 

This 6 June, we had the pleasure to welcome at the IIAS new headquarter our colleague, Mr. César Rojas Alfonzo, Executive Secretary of the Latin American Group for Public Administration (LAGPA), the IIAS regional entity.

Aside from paying the Institute a visit, César was here to debrief the IIAS Congress in Aix-en-Provence where he represented LAGPA President,  Prof. Edgar Varela Barrios, but also to discuss next year’s planned Joint Conference with the International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA).

More information about this future event will follow in the coming weeks. 

We are happy to announce that Dr. Sofiane Sahraoui was appointed as the new Director general of the IIAS during the Council of Administration meeting in February 2017. He took his office on May 2nd, succeeding Mr. Rolet Loretan who is retiring.

Mr. Loretan has held this position since November 2006 and the IIAS is grateful for his commitment during those past ten years at the head of the Permanent administrative services of the Institute and we wish him all the best in this new chapter in his life.

Dr Sahraoui is a well-known figure in the IIAS Family. A Franco-Tunisian national, he worked at the Bahrain Institute of Public Administration (BIPA) for many years. He participated to the foundation of the MENAPAR Network and is sitting at the Board of Management of our International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA) as well as co-chair of its working group on “Public Policy and Decision-Making.” He was designated as General Rapporteur of the 2013 Congress of IIAS/IASIA and the 2017 IASIA/MENAPAR conference.
