Big-Data research in Public Administration

Practitioners are increasingly using Big Data analytics to develop smarter policies, improve service provision, and advance internal (business) processes. In a similar vein, Big Data analytics has the potential to advance the discipline of public administration too. At the IRPSM conference in Wellington, New Zealand, we organize a panel aiming to bring together public administration scholars who research very large data sets to discuss the potentials and challenges of big-data research methods for public administration.
