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.
ERA RATING 5 AGAIN
We celebrate success with the announcement of the Excellence in Research for Australia ERA for 2018. Political science had another outstanding result in the latest ERA ratings. Political Science received '5', 'well above world standard' (as we did in 2012 and 2015).
What is especially pleasing is that the Policy and Administration category improved from '3' in 2015 to '4' (above world standard), suggesting an impressive upward trajectory.
These results are an independent endorsement of the Centre's continuing commitment to collegiality and research excellence.
INTEGRITY AND CORRUPTION IN 2030

GENDER EQUALITY RESEARCH NETWORK LAUNCH
An initiative by Sara Davies (GBS) and Sue Harris-Rimmer (AEL), the Gender Equality Research Network was established to enhance and promote gender equality research across the Behavioural Sciences and Humanities. The network was launched on 22 February 2019. Guest speakers Professor Joy Damousi from University of Melbourne, Professors Andrew O'Neil and Andrea Bishop presented highlighted the importance of such an initiative and in particular the area of gender equality in future research outputs. The pilot program will support a small group of gender scholars by providing opportunities for professional development in career and research areas.
The Palgrave Handbook of Contemporary International Political Economy has recently been released by Palgrave Macmillan.
The handbook was edited by Tim Shaw, Laura C. Mahrenbach, Renu Modi, Xu Yi-Chong.
It provides interdisciplinary perspectives from scholars hailing from the global North and South, the Handbook illustrates the theoretical innovations and empirical richness necessary to explain today’s ever-changing world.
Understanding these issues is of critical importance to better anticipate current and future global transformations.
