Reforming the public sector for a more equal society

Policy Online carries a link (5.12.16) to a collection of Australian Fabians research essays which, collectively, argue that reforming the public sector should be a topic of vital interest to all progressives.

‘As Fabians we believe in harnessing the power of the state to drive social and economic progress, and to protect our community and environment from exploitation.

‘Now, more than ever we need a skilled and motivated public sector to continue the social democratic project in an era of unprecedented pressure and change.

‘As progressives, we need to understand these challenges, so that we can defend those elements of the current model that are essential and support the real reforms needed to modernise the public service.

‘This collection of essays makes an invaluable contribution to doing just that.

‘… Reforming the public sector is perhaps the least politically sexy area of public policy, and yet it should be a topic of vital interest to all progressives.’
