Has Australia Lost its Success Mojo?

  • Sofitel Melbourne on Collins 25 Collins Street Melbourne VIC 3000 Australia (map)

Why is our society fixated on public policy failures, rather than celebrations and learnings of success?

Join ANZSOG experts in discussing the learnings from a new ANU Press book ‘Successful Public Policy: Lessons from Australia and New Zealand’ in aim of identifying whether Australia is destined for future public policy success.  Edited by ANZSOG-affiliated academics Joannah Luetyens, Michael Mintrom and Paul ‘t Hart, the book is part of a global project looking at why our society seems so fixated on public policy failures, instead of celebrating and learning from success.

With vigorous debate, and a panel that has been at the frontline of public policy development and research, this session will leave you inspired to alter society’s interpretation of public policy, its impact, and its future.  Are Australia’s best successes behind us or do we still have plenty of courage and the capacity to dream large.

Now is the time to poke the bear, and shift what is accepted.

Will the public sector make Australia great again?
