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.
ULURU STATEMENT OF THE HEART
Centre members Professors Ciaran O'Faircheallaigh and Duncan McDonnell combined with the Indigenous Research Unit to present a Special Seminar by Thomas Mayor on the Uluru Statement from the Heart. Thomas shared his insights in relation to the consensus at Uluru, his travels throughout the nation with the Uluru Statement Canvas, and what all Australians can do to achieve the Statement's ultimate vision: A Constitutionally Enshrined First Nations Voice and Makarrata. Elder Bill Buchanan from Reconciliation Queensland and Heron Loban from the Griffith Law School contributed to the seminar.
