Some Governments take on more than they can accomplish.  Others fail to attempt to address fundamental issues of public good.

This workshop will look at the rationales for government interventions, the criteria for instrument choice, as well as the limits of government intervention and issues best left to the private and not-for-profit sectors.

In addition, it will address a number of current issues of public policy, possibly including Climate Change, Security, Fiscal Policy, Immigration, Death and Dying etc.
