Whistleblowing research goes international
'Protecting While They Prosper? Organisational Responses to Whistleblowing', funded for 3 years, gathers $1,082,000 in cash and in-kind resources for the world's first empirical study of how organisations manage employee-reported wrongdoing, to systematically compare responses and outcomes between public and private sector organisations, and between multiple state and national jurisdictions (Australia and New Zealand).
The fifteen partner organisations involved in the project include 10 Australian public integrity agencies led by the Commonwealth and NSW Ombudsman's offices, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, the NZ Ombudsman and State Services Commission, and CPA Australia. The Griffith University-led team also includes researchers from University of Sydney, the ANU, and Victoria University Wellington.
Dialetics of World Politics
Centre member Dr Shannon Brincat has edited this new publication through Routledge - Rethinking Globalizations.
This volume explores the conceptual, methodological and praxeological aspects of dialectical analysis in world politics. As dialectics has remained an under-theorised analytical tool in international relations, this volume provides a critical resource for those seeking to deploy dialectics in their own research by showcasing its effectiveness for understanding and transforming world politics.
Contributions demonstrate a number of innovative ways in which dialectical thinking can be of benefit to the study of world politics by covering thematic concerns, canvassing a diverse range of dialectical approaches, and offers key insights into the social forces and contradictions that are generative of transformation in world politics.
This book was originally published as a special issue of Globalizations
