FGV professor appointed member of United Nations Committee of Experts on Public Administration
Alketa Peci, a professor at Fundação Getulio Vargas’ Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (FGV EBAPE) and president of the National Association for Graduate Studies and Research in Administration (ANPAD), has been appointed a member of the United Nations Committee of Experts on Public Administration (CEPA) by the UN secretary general. She will serve on the committee between August 2021 and July 2025.
Since the committee was founded, several other Brazilian public administration specialists have served on it, including former finance minister and FGV EAESP professor Luiz Carlos Bresser Pereira and Regina Silvia Viotto Monteiro Pacheco, former president of the National School of Public Administration and also an FGV EAESP professor.
CEPA was set up by the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). It has 24 members, who meet every year at the UN’s headquarters in New York. Its mission is to support ECOSOC’s work in promoting and developing public administration and governance in the UN’s member states, especially in relation to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda.
