Enhancing knowledge of governance in Australia and internationally

Griffith’s Centre for Governance and Public Policy is an outstanding intellectual environment for world-class research engaging international scholars and government and policy communities. We examine and critique the capacity, accountability and sustainability of the public service and government, providing insights into improved management structures. By working closely with governmental and non-governmental partners, we are making a tangible mark on governance research. Our outstanding scholarship has seen the Centre awarded numerous grants, including more than 40 ARC Discovery/DECRA grants between 2000-2017, and publication of more than 100 books in the past decade.
