Topic title

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

Topic description

My project explores the factors that influence the way officials at the Commonwealth and State/Territory levels of the federation 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. My dissertation reporting on my findings and conclusions based on those interviews is now complete and awaiting examination.

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