Professor Shamit Saggar

Welcome from the Director of the UWA Public Policy Institute

Tuesday, 26 March 2019

Who we are

I am the new Director of The University of Western Australia Public Policy Institute.

This is the first Director’s blog, a series in which I lay out thoughts, reflections and suggestions on two themes: the way we do public policy (or how) and the substance of policy in different areas (or what). Leading UWA PPI provides me with a unique platform to add my thoughts and, hopefully, to stimulate others. We exist to champion evidence-based public policy to drive better solutions and outcomes.
