This course examines the relationship between policy, governance, regulation and organisations in both domestic (State, Federal, and Indigenous) and international contexts. We explore how organisational theories and arrangements influence policy; how management theory and trends in governance practice influence the selection of policy and regulatory instruments; and how policy options and delivery are influenced by management. You will gain a deeper critical understanding of and be able to analyse the organisational arrangements inherent in the implementation of public policy under different cultural and political systems, federal models of Government, and international, multi-lateral systems of governance at the intersection with national policy.
