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.
Grant Success for Dr Tu Nguyen
The 2018 Labour Research Contest was organised by the International Labour Organisation in Vietnam and the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs. It calls for proposals by Vietnamese researchers that explores changes and dynamics of industrial relations in the country and provides the ground for improving law and policy practices. Tu's proposal examines the role of labour law in addressing gender discrimination in the garment sector in a southern province. The project will examine how female workers perceive their rights and discriminatory acts, and whether and how they tackle them through legal measures.
Congratulations on your grant success, Tu.
