Papers

The Programme's second workshop will be to bring together people from (as far as possible) all the research groups, to enable us all to get a better feel for the shape of the Programme overall, to initiate possible synergies or collaborative work among various groups. We envisage a number of papers on work in progress or maybe recently completed work in the area of your project, or perhaps a preliminary outline of work that you are just getting under way. If you would like to offer a paper or short presentation at the workshop, do please let us know. Thanks again to all who have already offered to speak about their work. Please contact if you would like to offer a paper or presentation at the workshop or if you have any queries.

GovNet Conference 2005 - Contemporary Issues in Governance
28-30 November 2005

Monash University, Melbourne, Australia

Governance has affected the operations and outcomes of activities in every organisation. Governance is a dynamic system, evolving along with other political, social, economic and technical revolutions. The roles, responsibilities, and relationships among actors within society, including government agencies, business sector and civil society organisations have changed accordingly, posing new challenges and issues to contemporary governance.

Dr Justin O'Brien from Queen's University, Belfast was an invited speaker.

'Accountable Governance' brings together senior academics from across the disciplines to map a research agenda for the next few years. The details can be found at:
