GOVERNANCE AND PUBLIC POLICY GROUP
The Governance and Public Policy Group initiative provides a first-rate research and policy deliberation environment for current and former policy makers, academic and civic leaders, and bureaucrats to share their experience. Laws, priorities and governmental actions form the basis of public policy, and understanding these processes is vital for the success of any plans and programs that a society depends on: health, education, public safety, environment, and social safety nests. Through workshops, seminars, and short term research sabbatical, this platform hopes to nurture a learning and knowledge sharing environment that provides valuable opportunities for the new generation of scholars and students to learn about the governance from the best and the brightest. The platform also hopes to take on difficult and challenging topics for debate and deliberation, and encourages participants to engage in outside-the-box thinking.
