From April 20-24, 2015, the 14th session of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Public Administration (CEPA) with the United Nations met. The session focused on the building of trust in government, with a priority on creating sustainable development goals. The Director of the Institute for Public Management and Community Service, Dr. Allan Rosenbaum, was in attendance. In addition to his participation, there were numerous distinguished guests giving presentations focusing on issues from measuring public trust to promoting accountable institutions and ethical leadership in order to enhance confidence in efforts to create sustainable development. The goal of the session was to create an understanding of the relationship between the public government and how policy is affected by a lack of trust in government. This gathering of distinguished experts aimed to formulate new ideas in order to promote more trust in government, as well as effective implementation of policies which promote sustainable development goals.
