Journal of Public Affairs and Development Call for Papers

Written by CPAf Website Administrator


The Journal of Public Affairs and Development (JPAD) is a biannual refereed journal that seeks to provide a forum to discuss topics such as agricultural and rural policy studies, rural institutions, local governance, community education, agrarian issues, and development pathways of communities in transition.
