Energy Policy, a leading academic journal, recently published an article by GSPIA associate professor Jeremy Weber and PhD student Max Harleman. The piece, which explores how natural resource ownership affects local financial gains, presents a typology for understanding different ownership regimes (private-absentee, public-absentee, private-local, and public-local). The article was largely informed by Harleman's fieldwork in the UK, where he spent several weeks during summer 2016 UK talking to key stakeholders about that the policies and politics of shale gas development there.
We are delighted to announce that three new assistant professors will be joining the GSPIA faculty in Fall 2018. Gary Hollibaugh and Daniel Jones will serve primarily in the MPA program, and Erica Owen will serve primarily in the MPIA program.
Thanks to the efforts of MPA students, Aishwarya Kumar and Shanshan Luan, GSPIA has established a student chapter of the International City/County Management Association (ICMA). The ICMA Student Chapter will help to introduce and integrate students into the local government management profession and familiarize students with members, resources, and the ICMA Code of Ethics.
