A new book examines why all governments ‘stuff up’, why policies often fail and what practical steps we might take to improve policy-making in Aotearoa New Zealand.
University of Canterbury Adjunct Professors Sonia Mazey and Jeremy Richardson lift the lid on policy-making in the new collection Policy-making Under Pressure: Rethinking the policy process in Aotearoa New Zealand, published by Canterbury University Press.
Its editors, Adjunct Professors Sonia Mazey and Jeremy Richardson of Canterbury University, offer a series of recommendations for better quality public policy including allowing ministers to be appointed from outside Parliament, establishing policy commissions, and a four-year term.
Professor Sonia Mazey joined Simon Barnett & James Daniels.
