Engagement with contemporary challenges
Fundamental to the Institute’s objectives of developing public value and brokering knowledge between practitioners and academics is lesson drawing from solving particular contemporary problems – i.e. ‘consultancies’, ‘contract research’, or ‘action based research’. The Institute will engage in external, contracted work where:
- a project’s objectives fall within one of the Institute’s identified research programs (also meaning that we have the expertise) and
- there is a research dividend in terms of access to publishable data (in at least the medium term).
Such engagements deliver direct real value and add to the Institute’s knowledge of governance in practice. Hence it is at the core of the Institute’s mission, as demonstrated by the examples of such work in the Institute’s history.
The Institute is a hub for professional networks including academic staff and professional adjuncts across disciplines of law, management and government. We have consulting experience both within Australia and throughout the Asia-Pacific region. Our consulting is based on the most up-to-date research in the field of governance and management, and includes expertise in research, reviews, surveys, training and advice.
