Comparative Politics and Public Policy

Our research expertise engages with a number of salient themes in current academic discourse, including governance, government, democracy, leadership, political parties, state capacity, policy design, the delivery of public services and regulation.  This expertise cuts across many geo-political levels (international, regional, national and local) and is applied to a range of policy areas, such as environment and climate change, security, economic transformation, welfare and education.
