Professor Purshottama Reddy of UKZN’s School of Public Administration attended the 2010 Annual Conference of the International Association of Schools and Institutes of Administration (IASIA) in Bali, Indonesia recently.

Professor Reddy presented a paper titled: The Role of Participation in Local Development: the Case of South Africa which was co-authored by UKZN graduate Dr Jayanathan Govender. Approximately 462 delegates from 62 countries attended the Conference.

Professor Reddy was re-appointed as Project Director of the Working Group on Local Governance and Development of IASIA, headquartered in Brussels, for the period 2010-2013. As Project Director, he is required to develop the themes of the Group for the invitation brochure for annual conferences, accept/reject paper proposals, manage the sessions/activities at annual conferences, and act as rapporteer and develop and co-ordinate research proposals for possible publications of the Group. In his capacity as Project Director, he also serves on the Board of Management representing the African Continent.

Together with other members of the Board of Management, Professor Reddy received a Certificate for Outstanding Leadership in recognition of his services to the Association at the Conference. The Certificates were presented by outgoing President of IASIA Professor Allan Rosenbaum from Florida International University.

Professor Reddy has a long history with IASIA, having attended all the annual conferences since 1990. He hosted the 1996 Annual IASIA Conference in Durban. This was a joint initiative between the former University of Durban-Westville, M L Sultan Technikon, Mangosuthu Technikon and the University of Zululand. Professor Reddy has served as the Project Director of the Working Group on Local Governance and Development and as a member of the Board of Management of IASIA since 1998.

The Working Group on Local Governance and Development is one of the most successful IASIA Working Groups in terms of paper presentations, attendance and publications generated. The Chairperson of the Group is Professor Michel De Vries, who is attached to Radboud University in the Netherlands and is the current Vice-President of Publications of IASIA.
