Networks, innovation and public policy : politicians, bureaucrats and the pathways to change inside government /

by Considine, Mark.

Publisher: New York, NY Palgrave Macmillan 2009Description: xvi, 231 p. ; 23 cm.Notes: Formerly CIP. Includes bibliographical references and index.Summary: "Drawing on a major quantitative and qualitative study, involving almost 800 actors and their networks, this book examines the different normative approaches politicians, bureaucrats and community actors use to frame the innovation puzzle, arguing that these create specific cultures of innovation. Combining public policy with social network analysis, the authors explore the role of formal institutions and informal networks in promoting and impeding governmental innovation. It shows conclusively that networks matter more than any other single attribute, shaping local cultures in governments and marking out differences in the way politicians and bureaucrats address innovation inside government."--BOOK JACKET.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

It is about people realizing their potential, increasing their choices and enjoying the freedom to lead lives they value. Since 1990, annual Human Development Reports have explored challenges including poverty, gender, democracy, human rights, cultural liberty, globalization, water scarcity and climate change. Migration, both within and beyond borders, has become an increasingly prominent theme in domestic and international debates, and is the topic of the 2009 Human Development Report. The starting point is that the global distribution of capabilities is extraordinarily unequal, and that this is a major driver for movement of people. Migration can expand their choices 'in terms of incomes, accessing services and participation, for example' but the opportunities open to people vary from those who are best endowed to those with limited skills and assets. These underlying inequalities, which can be compounded by policy distortions, is a theme of the report. The report investigates migration in the context of demographic changes and trends in both growth and inequality. It also presents more detailed and nuanced individual, family and village experiences, and explores less visible movements typically pursued by disadvantaged groups such as short term and seasonal migration.Availability: (1)
