The Australian Risk Policy Institute (ARPI) and Crawford School of Public Policy have extended their successful strategic partnership commenced in 2011. The partnership focuses on improving risk-based decision making and the successful development and implementation of public policy.
“The ongoing partnership represents a significant opportunity for ARPI to continue to deliver new knowledge to society,” said ARPI President Tony Charge. “ANU is a leader in academic performance.
“ARPI is a senior professional, independent think-tank whose purpose is to promote Risk Policy in society and is the convenor of an expanding Global Risk Policy Network, comprising affiliated Risk Policy Institutes and a collaboration of special-purpose networks such as security, cyber, complex project management, and fraud and counterfeiting,” Tony Charge added.
“Risk Policy represents new thinking and approaches to ‘risk’ - starting with paradigm change to engage the environment in which an organisation operates and increasing information obtained, enabling earlier advice of vulnerabilities and opportunities which may otherwise not be seen at all or until risks arise or become live issues or crises to respond to,” Tony Charge added. “It’s about giving leaders the right information on the right issue at the right time.”
“The Australian National University is excited at the opportunity of maintaining its association with ARPI recognising the valuable leadership and policy contribution that Risk Policy is making in Australia and increasingly overseas,” said Professor Robert Breunig, Acting Director of Crawford School.
“The ANU Crawford School of Public Policy is Asia and the Pacific’s leading graduate public policy school. Staff and students at the School play an essential role in shaping public policy through research, education and policy engagement. Crawford School is home to some of the region’s most important researchers and many staff are active on government committees and in key advisory roles across government, business and civil society,” he added.
“Students at the School contribute actively to the impact being made on the world’s challenges surrounding such issues as water, food, energy, economic development, the environment, and governance. Crawford School offers graduate degrees and executive programs in areas that include public policy, applied economics, public administration, and environmental management.”
