How to Run a Government: So That Citizens Benefit and Taxpayers Don’t Go Crazy

Why do we need a book on how to run a government? Can we understand where the seam of poor decision making in government lies? How can we prevent decisions that waste public money, government time, and citizens’ jobs? And, crucially, how do we implement decisions that improve the lives of everyone living under a government? In conjunction with Blackwell’s Oxford, Blavatnik School of Government is hosting a panel discussion with Sir Michael Barber, Professor Christopher Hood and Professor Gwyn Bevan. They will be discussing Sir Michael’s recent book How to Run a Government. There will also be an opportunity to purchase a signed copy of the book following the discussion.
