Philanthrocapitalism and public policy: investing for improved outcomes or rich people making money out of poor people?

The Melbourne School of Government (MSoG) embraces all aspects of governance and public policy including international relations, development studies and public policy and administration. Professor Helen Sullivan is its Foundation Director.
 
Helen’s research explores the changing nature of state-society relationships and includes the theory and practice of changing modes of governance, new forms of democratic participation, and the practice of public policy and service reform. She has published widely and is co-author of four books.
At the launch of MSoG Helen said
 
"We want to . . . train future leaders to make wiser decisions and build strong public institutions, and to foster and support a culture of informed public debate.
 
A laudable objective, to be sure!
 
At our Melbourne Forum lunch Helen will discuss “The future of philanthropy in Australian public policy”.  In the context of cuts to our foreign aid budget, this should be fascinating!

 

Helen is Foundation Director of the Melbourne School of Government (MSoG) and a policy studies researcher and teacher. She has degrees from the UK Universities of Birmingham and York and worked in a number of roles in government before moving to academia.  Helen took on the role of MSoG Director in 2012 and led the development of this interdisciplinary and applied graduate school, which embraces all aspects of governance and public policy including international relations, development studies and public policy and administration.

Helen’s research explores the changing nature of state-society relationships and includes the theory and practice of changing modes of governance, new forms of democratic participation, and the practice of public policy and service reform. She has published widely in academic and practitioner media and is the co-author of four books.

Helen has a specific interest in finding new ways to bridge the gap between research and policy and this is reflected in MSoG’s approach to research, teaching and engagement.
