Topic title

New Wheels for Deakin's Chariot? Continuity and Change in Australian Intergovernmental Management

Topic description

My research explored the factors that influence the way officials in the Commonwealth and State/Territory governments work with one another to carry out the functions of intergovernmental management.

I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to interview a number of senior officials in Commonwealth and State/Territory central and line departments and agencies, and I thank them for their insights and contribution. The thesis is now available on the ANU Open Research repository using this link:

Apart from Professor Wanna, my supervisory panel included Dr Amanda Smullen and Dr Tracy Fenwick
