The public sector and public value

Professor Janine O’Flynn joins us for the first episode of Policy Forum Pod for 2024! In conversation, the Director of the Crawford School of Public Policy talks about the obligation and position of the school, and other universities, to exercise a ‘convening power’ and bring together a range of different actors and views in our complex public policy systems.

Professor O’Flynn also talks about the catalytic power of government and the opportunity to reimagine the story of the state through a framework of public value. Janine also speaks about the idea of humility and humble government, which listens to lived experience and equally valid expertise that exists outside of the system.
