“Unity in Diversity”: An Overused Motto—And Yet a Perfect Fit for EGPA

The kind of “diversity” which can be found within EGPA and its members belongs, at least, to three orders: cultural, disciplinary and in terms of reference model. A key question is whether this diversity is kept alive or reduced, and whether this is for the better or the worse. Diversity: it has always been strong within EGPA; it is sufficient to look at the list of the EGPA Permanent Study Groups to be convinced. Unity: more synergies within EGPA and with the other entities of the International Institute of Administrative Sciences (IIAS) family; it is a work that constantly needs to be renewed, but it certainly is beneficial to all.
