ANZSIG Fellows Meredith Edwards and John Halligan have written a book titled Public Sector Governance in Australia. Written with Bryan Horrigan and Geoff Nicoll, the book provides the first comprehensive cross-disciplinary theoretical and empirical work on governance in the Commonwealth public sector. The book is available through ANU E Press. The book will be officially launched later this month.
What do we mean by citizen-centric governance? Where is best practice to be found? What happens when citizens decide? Are there emerging policy agendas that are best suited to a citizen-centric approach? And, what are the implications of such an approach for public sector leadership and governance? ANZSIG is delighted to bring together a group of leading international and national design thinkers on citizen-centric governance in an interactive interview format to help us to address these questions. This event will be held at the Lobby on Tuesday 29 November. Click here for further details.
