Seminar Series: Leading from Between
On 22 August 2014 Centre members Ciaran O’Faircheallaigh and Tony Corbett and Centre Visiting Fellow Catherine Althaus will present preliminary results from their international research project ‘Leading from Between: Indigenous Leadership in the Public Services of British Columbia, Queensland and New Zealand’.
The seminar starts to address questions drawing on statistical data, literature reviews, and interviews undertaken with indigenous public servants. It also begins to consider the theoretical and practical implications of Indigenous participation and leadership in the public sector for Indigenous policymaking and for public service more broadly.

Confronting the Devolution Paradox
In July, the project team hosted a very successful workshop in Montreal as part of our ARC Discovery Project, 'Confronting the Devolution Paradox'.
The Workshop assembled 20 leading federalism scholars from nine different countries, all members of the International Political Science Association's Research Committee 28 ('Comparative Federalism and Multi-Level Governance'). It focused on the problem of identifying federal values as part of the development of an improved measure of federal political culture, in light of existing Australian and US research. It generated a lively discussion, instrumental to future stages of the project.
