Join Our Lecture on “Public Policy: What Governments Do, and What They Do Not Do”

Are you intrigued by the complexities of public policy and the decisions governments make? Don't miss this unique opportunity to gain insights from Professor Gaby Ramia, a renowned expert from the University of Sydney. Join us for an insightful online lecture on "Public Policy: What Governments Do, and What They Do Not Do" on Friday, 21 June 2024, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Jakarta time).

While public policy is often perceived as government action and intervention, the concept of 'policy inaction'—governments choosing not to act on certain issues—is frequently overlooked. In this engaging session, Professor Ramia will explore the fundamental definitions of public policy, scrutinising both active policy measures and deliberate inaction. The lecture will begin with an analysis of the political and institutional contexts that shape policy-making processes, highlighting examples of both action and inaction. It will then delve into various policy perspectives, with a particular focus on the 'policy cycle' model. Real-world case studies will illustrate how governments decide to either take action or refrain from doing so and the factors influencing these decisions.

Calling all graduates and scholars of Australian tertiary institutions from Indonesia who are interested in understanding the complexities of public policy and gaining insights into governmental decision-making processes. RSVP by Wednesday, 19 June, to secure your place in this online lecture. Register now at this link. As a token of appreciation for your participation, attendees will receive an e-certificate.
